Extremely high yields. Large good quality fruits.
Picking time late July, early August. Long extended season.
Canes have a few spines and good botrytis resistance
Plant canes 18 inches apart. Fruits on the previous year's cane which must be tied up to support the crop.
Plant the canes about 18 (45 cm) apart with 6 ft (1.8 m) between the rows.
Avoid planting the young canes too deeply, a covering of 3 (7.5 cms) over the roots is ample. Cut the canes down to 9 (23 cms) above the soil immediately after planting (bare root canes only).
In the spring when the new shoots appear from beneath the soil the 9 stub should be cut away.
The young canes are tied into a wire fence system for cropping the following season.
Subsequently all canes which have fruited are cut out at ground level immediately after fruiting.
These plants are grown in a 3 litre pot
Each pot contains 5 canes.
