An early fruiting spine free variety with superb fruit quality. The fruits are large, firm, long and conical. They have a bright and attractive appearance and the juicy berries have a truly excellent flavour. Cropping potential is very high with the strong canes, vigour is moderate in comparison with other blackberries so if space is limited it is an excellent choice. Ideal for planting against a wall or a fence or growing in a container. The fruit is well displayed to make picking easy from the short, stout, fruiting laterals.
Planting distance: 3m apart.
Height & Spread: 1.5m x 1.2m.
Crops: late July/August.
Plant 3m (10ft) apart in rows.
Best grown against a fence or wall for support in well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade.
Soak the root-ball before planting. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot. Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established.
Fruit is produced on the previous year's stems. Tie in the new shoot - these will flower and fruit in the second year. Cut away the older stems and replace them with new vigorous shoots. Cut back damaged shoots in late winter and apply a general fertiliser.
