A widely grown and popular variety to rival 'Malling Admiral'. It has spineless canes, some resistance to aphids and virus, and is easy to grow and control. The heavy yield of very firm, round fruit is ready for picking from mid-July and the raspberries are full of flavour. A good mid-season variety.Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure in to the area. Plant canes 8cm (3in) deep, at 45cm (18in) intervals, carefully spreading out the roots and backfilling with soil. Subsequent rows should be 1.8m apart. These plants produce their fruit on one year old canes, so the new canes need to be separated from the old ones. After their first year in the ground and immediately after cropping, cut the fruiting canes down to ground level and tie in the new ones that have grown that year. Mulch well with well rotted manure each spring.
