    Identical in every respect to traditional tayberries with the exception that this exciting new hybrid is thornless so have smooth canes. It will produce its large tangy fruit in late July and August and bumper crops can be frozen and enjoyed at a later date. Ideal for planting against a wall or a fence it also does well in large containers.

  • Garden care: Prepare the soil well by digging in lots of composted manure before you plant. Plant it in mounded rows or raised beds with parallel wires for support. Alternatively train it against a wall or trellis and you can expect up to 20lb of delicious fruit from the second season. It is important to avoid excessive winter wet.
