RUBUS fruticosus BLACKBERRY Bedford Giant
Long established early variety that is very vigorous and reliable. Ideal for heavy cropping or for a protective screen. The large berries are sweet and juicy and are superb for freezing and all other purposes. Bedford Giant is not fussy and crops well under all conditions giving an exceptional yield of quality fruit. Will tolerate shade and ground that drains poorly. The bright black fruits are round and hang in large clusters for easy picking. Hardy but can be vulnerable to hard frosts on very exposed sites. Best suited to larger gardens and planted up against a wall or fence.
