This lovely cross between a raspberry and blackberry has fruit which is slightly longer and fatter than a raspberry with a juicier and sharper flavour. These sturdy plants, more disease and frost resistant than many other berry hybrids, usually produce fruit throughout June, July, August and September. The large berries should be allowed to darken to a deep purple colour before picking to obtain the best-flavoured fruit. They are undemanding, easy to grow, and continue to fruit for many years. Seedlings may give slightly different but equally tasty fruits so expect the odd delicious surprise!
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may cause them to enter even deeper dormancy.
