A new, highly recommended late fruiting variety producung bright, translucent berries with deliciously sweet acidic flavour borne on long, easily picked bunches. Consistently high yields ready for picking in mid-August. Its compact growth makes it good for small spaces.

They prefer cool, well-mulched soil and will tolerate partial shade, but berries will be sweeter if ripened in the sun. They will need protection from birds. Self-fertile. 2 year bushes. Plant 1.8m (6ft) apart.

Bare-Root Plants

Bare-root plants are sold without a pot/soil around the roots. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way of growing plants. To ensure the best plant health we do not store our plants in cold storage, but they are left in our field or plant beds until they are ready for packing or collection.

Items marked Br are bare rooted plants grown from cuttings and are typically 1-2 years old.


Bare rooted plants are only available when the plants are dormant (typically from late November to March).

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.
