Blackberry Reuben produces fruit in year one and this is because it is Britain's first Primocane Blackberry that will fruit on the first year's growth! It has an upright growth habit with compact fruit-bearing laterals, which makes picking easier and hence makes it a garden friendly variety. Reuben crops from late August and will continue fruiting right up to the first frosts - in fact you can prolong the fruiting by giving some fleece protection when nights begin to turn colder. The large fruits can be up to twice the size of most garden varieties and a fully mature plant can yield up to 3.5kg fruit!
There is nothing tastier than picking your own fruit fresh from the garden. We have selected some of the best in new fruit breeding for your experience and these larger 2ltr potted plants are just raring to grow! They are more mature, will be quick to establish and quicker to fruit – giving an almost instant fruit garden later in the growing year. They are excellent for planting in any gaps you might have in the garden in high summer.
Delicious in pies, puddings and jams, Reuben is wonderfully sweet, eaten fresh straight from the plant.
