Loch Tay, Blackberry

EU 16917
Bred by JHI, Loch Tay is the second major selection to emerge from the breeding programme that produced Loch Ness and is now widely planted in both the UK and Europe.

Three weeks earlier than Loch Ness and with significantly better flavour, Loch Tay is rapidly becoming a preferred variety by the multiples.

Fruit firmness is comparable to Loch Ness but the berries are slightly smaller at 4.5-5g average. The variety has a semi-erect thornless habit similar to Loch Ness, but with significantly improved vigour and better resistance to Downy Mildew.

Ordering Information
How To Grow – Plant in a sunny position with free draining soil. If you have chalky, sandy or heavy clay soil, improve with plenty of bulky organic matter before planting. Allow spacings from 2m to 3.5m per plant and support the stems using framework or train against a trellis or wall. Apply a layer of organic mulch annually ensuring that this is not too close to the new growth to prevent rotting. In autumn, prune the canes which have fruited to ground level whilst the canes which have not fruited should be ‘tied in’ to their supports.
