Description: Glen Prosen ® is a high quality mid season variety. Extremely high yields of very good quality berries that are bright red in colour, medium sized and have a delicious flavour.

The fruits have an excellent shelf life, can be eaten fresh from the bush or cooked into sweet dishes, Raspberry jams, Raspberry gin or frozen. A great variety for beginners being easy to grow and great for small spaces or patio growing. Quite a hardy variety so it can also suit colder and wetter conditions.

Raspberry Growing Tips: Thrive in moisture-retentive, fertile, slightly acidic soils which are well-drained. Prefer being planted in sunny sheltered locations, although they will tolerate partial shade. Regular pruning will result in healthier and better quality plants. All varieties are self fertile and are pollinated by insects.
