Glen Mor is a recently introduced early summer fruiting raspberry from the James Hutton Institute that has performed very well for vigour and fruit quality. It fruits over a 5-6 week period from late June on thorn free canes. The fruit is described a sweet with some acidity and hints of coconut. Anyway it sounds very appetising!
Glen Mor seems to have the attribute of producing some fruit on the tips of the new canes in the autumn. The same canes will then go on to fruit the following summer. Photo in gallery taken 1 September.
Plant around 45cm apart into ground that has not grown raspberries or other Rubus species, ie Loganberry, before. A support structure will be required.
After planting in the spring basal shoots will arise from beneath the soil level. Allow these to grow, they will provide fruit the following summer.
In the second year after planting basal shoots will again arise from the base. Allow these to grow, they will fruit the following summer, the third summer after planting. The basal shoots that grew in the first summer will fruit in the second summer.
After fruiting cut out the old canes to ground level and thin out the one year basal shoots leaving strong shoots 8-10cm apart.
Supplied bare rooted in bundles of 5 when dormant from December until late March. Non-organic plants.
