Raspberry - Rubus idaeus 'Glen Lyon'
This is a healthy, floricane, self-fertile, thornless deciduous raspberry that produces extremely good yields of large, rounded, glossy fruit that’s consistently fine-flavoured and ready for picking in early June. It is a relatively new variety that’s excellent for culinary use and makes a reasonable dessert fruit that’s suitable for freezing.
To harvest the raspberries, grasp each berry carefully with thumb and forefinger, and pull gently. If it doesn’’t separate from the plant easily, without squashing the fruit, it isn’’t ready for picking.

Widely grown across Europe, it was originally developed in Scotland but proved to be most successful when grown in Spain. Primocane varieties produce flowers and fruit on stems grown in the same year. Most Autumn fruiting varieties are primocanes. Summer fruiting varieties are usually Floricane raspberries which have stems that grow for one year before bearing fruit and flowers.
