Not too difficult to grow
Plant pot grown or bare root bushes with at least four evenly spaces stems. Space 1-1.5m apart. Choose well drained soil on sunny or part shaded sheltered site.
Remove length of main stems by half in second year and thereafter shorten longer side shoots.
Thin alternate fruits when 1cm long, leaving others to grow on. Pick (with a short stalk) when fully coloured. Plants are self-fertile.
