Salmonberry          £6.50

Rubus spectabilis             Low stock

One of our most productive, this plant is often grown as an ornamental.  Although a bit on the prickly side it is easier to manage than other members of the Raspberry family to whom it belongs being more upright and shrubby in habit.

Attractive foliage and bright pink flowers opening in very early spring it makes a decorative hedge about 1.5m high.  Though best suited to a sunny spot it is not fussy about soil.

The fruit is usually ripe several weeks before the Raspberry, which it closely resembles except that it’s shiny and usually a lovely amber/orange in colour though some have a red blush as well..  It is very tasty and rarely gets as far as the house and our chickens and blackbirds will do anything for them.
