Raspberry 'Lloyd George'
One of the earliest raspberry varieties in cultivation, 'Lloyd George' dates back to 1919 and has a direct link to the original wild raspberries. The soft fruit does not bode well for commercial production but is something special in your berry garden. Related to the Canadian Raspberry 'Chilliwack', deep red berries with an excellent sherbet like flavour and that true raspberry tangy are produced on 1 year old floricanes in summer, as well as a secondary crop on primocanes in early autumn. The autumn crop is earlier than other autumn fruiting types like 'Heritage', and 'Bogong', making this a useful variety for colder climates with a short season like we have at The garden of St Erth..
PRIMOCANE - These raspberries fruit on this seasons (new) growth. Simply prune to the ground after fruiting in late winter, ready to harvest berries again in autumn.
