This is a delicious, juicy, heavy-cropping variety with a vigorous, upright habit and fresh, deciduous, light green, serrated leaves that take on striking shades of red, orange and golden-yellow in the autumn.
It produces an abundance of large, firm, fine-flavoured aromatic fruits which ripen from July to August and are extremely nutritious, offering high vitamin contents. These are ideal for deep freezing as they retain their flavoursome taste exceptionally well and don't turn your lips blue.
Delicate clusters of stunning, pinkish-white, bell-shaped flowers are also borne from April to May and help to add colour and interest to the garden when the plant is not fruiting. It is an extremely robust and reliable variety which forms a strong, multi-branched framework and is suitable for container growing.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
