Glen Fyne®, Raspberry

EU 27262
A superbly flavoured mid-season selection from JHI with real potential to supersede Tulameen as the premier quality floricane. Bred by Nicki Jennings of MRS, Glen Fyne produces firm, bright, cohesive berries that are attractively coloured and comparable in size and shelf life to those of Glen Ample. Glen Fyne commences cropping three days earlier than Glen Ample, continues for a longer season and has consistently out yielded Glen Ample and is easy to pick. The variety produces exceptionally fine flavoured, aromatic fruit throughout its long season and when subjected to professional sensory profiling was ranked superior to all other selections including Tulameen. Glen Fyne is moderately vigorous, producing long and strong spine-free canes with close internodes suggesting that the variety has potential as a long cane. The berries are well presented on strong laterals and the canes are easily managed.

NB: Glen Fyne is susceptible to Raspberry Root Rot and needs to be grown on clean sites under protection with careful management including routine fungicides. Where Raspberry Root Rot is a problem it is recommended that the variety is grown in substrate.

Ordering Information
How To Grow – Plant from autumn through to late spring in a sunny position with free draining soil. Floricane raspberries (summer fruiting) will require a sturdy support system made of posts and horizontal wires, primocane raspberries (autumn fruiting) do not require supports. Plant in rows spaced 60cm (24”) apart and prune to 15cm (6”) above ground level immediately after planting to encourage more growth. At the time of despatch, canes will be dormant and often look dead, but this is completely normal. Prepare holes in the soil wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Please plant as soon as possible upon arrival and water well, apply a mulch to protect the roots from cold temperatures and the canes will then begin to establish. If conditions prevent immediate planting, heel the plants in.

More Information – Fresh dug raspberry canes are available from early November to January. Coldstored raspberry canes are available from February to May. The prices listed are for quantities per thousand, if you wish to place a smaller order please get in contact with a member of the team.
