A deliciously sweet and aromatic hybrid variety. Very fast growing and will perform well in a range of climates, including cooler regions. The mid-sized fruits are delicious in fruit salads and smoothies or eaten fresh from the patch. Ideal for small gardens as the vines can be trained onto a vertical trellis to save space.

Winner of an RHS Award of Garden Merit for reliability and good performance.
