A variety raised by the Scottish Crop Research Institute. It is a hybrid from Glen Prosen and an unnamed thornless black raspberry and the result has given us some thing rather special. Glencoe is remarkable for the intense colour of its fruits, and even more so for the lovely intense flavour. Cropping is heavy with yields similar to that of Glen Clova. The first purple Raspberry to be available for growing in this country and Europe. Glencoe is suitable for all dessert uses, and especially indispensable for preserves and flavouring, as the flavour is so intense. The spine free canes are easy to manage, growth is similar to a Raspberry but a little more bushy and vigorous. Quite superb and highly recommended.
