Glen Ericht, Raspberry
A new, Phytophthora tolerant, high yielding, machine harvestable, processing selection from JHI. Glen Ericht is an extremely productive early season variety that produces good sized, firm and cohesive berries.Ordering Information
The fruit is dark red with a good aroma, moderate Brix levels and high acidity making the fruit highly desirable for the processing and freezing market but unsuitable for fresh useage.
Yields in excess of 5 kg per stool have been recorded in trials. Glen Ericht has a vigorous root system and has been shown to be strongly field tolerant to Phytophthora (Raspberry Root Rot) when trialled on heavily infected plots in Scotland and have remained free of RBDV.
Canes are strongly erect, spine free and easy to manage. Fruit is well presented on strong laterals and plugs easily. Glen Ericht is ideal for harvesting using a Korvan machine.
Standard Cane: £700 per thousand
Root: £18 per kg
