A welcome addition to our lists, in trials Helen has provided good sized fruits of firm attractive appearance which ripen very early in late July. The flavour has been rated as Very Good, and this in commercial trials, not normally too bothered with the flavour of a new variety, so it must be impressive. The growth is completely thorn-free and, although early indications are that it is not as compact as Waldo and Loch Ness, it is certainly far less vigorous than most blackberries and a planting distance of 5-6ft should certainly be adequate. With its fine fruit quality, natural earliness, excellent flavour and compact growth habit, Helen is an attractive addition to the range of Garden Worthy Blackberries.
