RUBUS fruticosus BLACKBERRY Merton Thornless
Mid season thornless variety. Generous cropper of medium to large sized fruit with excellent flavour. A vigorous but exceptionally manageable variety due to the thornfree branches making maintenance simple. For best results, plant in half shade or full sun although Merton will tolerate shade and soil with less than efficient drainage. Hardy but can be vulnerable to hard frosts on very exposed sites.
Plant 3m (10ft) apart in rows.
Height & Spread: 2.5m x 7m
Cropping season: August/September
