Raised by the Institute of Horticultural research East Malling (East Malling Research Station) Emily is a very special new early cropping variety. Emily gives us a higher yielding and earlier season alternating to Honeyoye, In a favourable area you could be picking your first fruits in late May from outdoor cropping without protection! The fruits are medium sized with an attractive conical shape and deep red colour. The flavour is very good with that tangy freshness similar to Honeyoye. Picking 5 days before Honeyoye and 10 days earlier than Elsanta for 50% harvest: the plants are erect in habit and moderately vigorous. The fruit is very well displayed. One word of warning for those of you in Scotland and the far North. The blossom is early so be prepared to give this protection from frost.
