Glen Coe


Glen Coe, Raspberry

This specialist variety is the result of a cross between a black raspberry and Glen Prosen. The deep rich purple fruits have a waxy bloom and an excellent intense flavour and, similar to the Black raspberries, makes superb jams, sauces and wine.

Mid-season with yields comparable to red raspberries. Glen Coe is a significant improvement compared to other black varieties in being spine-free.

The variety is vigorous producing a moderate number of semi-erect canes from the stool. Good disease resistance.

This unique raspberry was bred by Dr. Derek Jennings at JHI.
