Tayberry

This marvellous mixture of a raspberry and blackberry is the size of a big raspberry with the sweetness and juice of a blackberry. Growing to the size of a large strawberry, the Tayberry is much more restrained than a blackberry and can be safely controlled. Don’t forget to prune back in winter!
