    A widely grown and popular variety to rival 'Malling Prosenl'. It has spineless canes, some resistance to aphids and virus and is easy to grow and control. The heavy yield of very firm round fruit is ready for picking from mid-July and the raspberries are full of flavour. A good mid-season variety.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure in to the area. Once planted shorten the canes to about 23cm (9in). Each spring mulch well with well-rotted manure. Plants flower on one-year-old wood so the new canes need to be separated from fruiting ones. After cropping cut the fruiting canes down to the ground and tie in the new ones that have grown that year.
