Glen Ample, Raspberry
Glen Ample is a main-season summer fruiting spine-free raspberry raised at JHI. The variety has produced exceptional yields of firm fruit in trials and has established new standards in raspberry production. Glen Ample produces large fleshy fruits of about 4-5 grams, which are round-conical in shape, attractive and with an excellent flavour. Ordering Information
The fruit ‘holds’ well on the cane resulting in significantly reduced picking costs. The 50% pick date is some 10 days later than Glen Moy but with a considerably longer picking season. The variety is spine-free with very upright canes. Spawn production is prolific making cane number control essential. The fruiting laterals are upright and present the fruit well.
Glen Ample is susceptible to aphid transmitted viruses, Root Rot, Spur Blight and Cane Rust. Yields can decline over time when husbandry conditions are less than ideal.
