    A popular variety with ornamental leaves and thornless stems. The saucer-shaped, white flowers flushed with pink are produced in summer, followed by medium-sized fruit with a mild and juicy flavour in late August to late September. It is a good variety to grow where people are likely to brush past the stems or trained over an arch or trellis.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure. Allow 3m between each plant and 1.8m between rows. Once planted, shorten the canes to about 23cm (9in). Each spring, mulch well with well-rotted manure. Plants flower on one-year-old wood, so the new canes need to be separated from fruiting ones. After cropping, cut the fruiting canes down to the ground and tie in the new ones that have grown that year.
