Raspberry 'Glen Coe' (Summer Fruiting)

Rubus

Hardy Shrub

  • Sweet tasting, purple fruits

Summer fruiting.

A remarkable summer fruiting variety producing unusual velvety-purple raspberries with an intensely sweet flavour. Thornless stems make it easy to harvest the generous crops that are ideal for making jams, desserts or eating fresh from the plant. Raspberry 'Glen Coe' has a vigorous habit, and will quickly form a multi-stemmed clump of bushy raspberry canes that show good resistance to verticillium wilt disease. This fantastic raspberry hybrid is highly productive and easy to grow.

All of our raspberries have been inspected by the Ministry of Agriculture for pests and diseases and certified. The bare root plants are hand graded and carefully selected before packing. Height: 200cm (79"). Spread: 120cm (48").


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 16-20 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 28-32 months.

Grow summer fruiting raspberry plants in a sunny position in any well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. The stems of summer fruiting raspberries will require support. Before planting, prepare a framework of wires stretched horizontally between two sturdy 1.8m (6') posts.


Plant raspberry canes in a row against the wire supports, allowing a distance of 60cm (24") between plants. Water well. Canes should be pruned to 15cm (6") above ground level immediately after planting to encourage more shoots to be produced.

Water summer fruiting raspberries well for the first year until plants are fully established. Loosely tie the stems in to their support wires as they grow. When berries begin to develop, place a net over the plants to protect the crop from birds. In autumn, prune the canes which have fruited over summer to ground level. Canes which have not fruited should be 'tied in' to their supports. Aim to have 6 to 8 fruiting canes per plant. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the canes in spring. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.
