Description

The large, grape-like berries are delicious, sweet enough to eat raw. With good mildew resistance, this garden favourite reliably produces fruit even in poor soil and shady spots.

Care Tips

Fruit is produced on previous year's shoots, so shape and prune after harvesting. Apply a general fertiliser in spring.
