A late summer fruiting variety with a season similar to that of Norfolk Giant, producing fruit of very high quality well into August. The medium sized, bright orange-red berries have delicious flavour and are suitable for all purposes. The heavier cropping potential makes Leo a valuable variety for extending the picking season. The fruits are excellent for dessert, freeze exceptionally well, and are suitable for all other purposes. The canes are upright and picking is easy as the fruit is well presented. Leo is another variety from East Malling Research Station with the added advantage that it has resistance to strains of the large raspberry aphid, so tends to be very resistant to virus disease. An excellent variety and should be planted far more often.
