This marvellous variety was raised by the Scottish Crop Research Institute. Loch Ness is a breakthrough in blackberry research and has a different type of growth to the standard varieties. The canes are vigorous, spine free, semi erect and very easy to manage. This new type of growth is ideal for the smaller garden where Loch Ness can be grown against a single post or even in a row of raspberries. The fruits are very large for a blackberry (4g) have a good colour and a lovely flavour. Picking is very easy from the thornless upright canes. Loch Ness crops from mid-late August to mid-late September. Plant just 3' apart. A superb new compact
variety and a must for gardens everywhere. Highly recommended. The ideal variety to follow Waldo.
