Rubus Tayberry is a fantastic cross between raspberry (Rubus idaeus) and blackberry (Rubus fruticosus)
Tayberry produces sweet and aromatic fruit, large and firm. It bears fruit abundantly – from one plant you can collect up to 4 kg of fruit*, 4 cm long. Which melt in your mouth when eaten fresh and add character to any desserts.
It grows quickly and strong. Doesn’t make root suckers. Due to the fact that the shoots are long and creeping (spiky) Tayberry should be lead on the stake, pergola, or trellis – will be a tasty decorative element. Has no special requirements, is strong and healthy, doesn’t require spraying.
Frost resistant down to about -18°C. In colder regions, it requires covering or cultivation undercover. It bears fruit on two-year-old shoots.
Tayberry has large, dark red or maroon fruits that ripen from mid-July to late August. They are perfect as a fresh summer dessert, in addition to cakes, ice cream, smoothies. We can process them into jams, confitures, juices, and syrups or freeze them to keep their aroma for the winter months.
Importantly, fruits contain a lot of vitamins, especially vitamin C, which stimulates our immunity. They provide iron that is necessary for the proper transport of oxygen in our bodies. Iron is part of our “protective shield” against infections and helps maintain good mental and physical conditions.
