Buckingham Tayberries are less ferociously spined tayberry plants. The tayberry is a hybridberry created by crossing blackberries and raspberries. Tayberries plants are higher yielding than loganberries and they produce enormous fruit - often up to 2" long (5cms). These are extremely tasty, have a lovely wine colour and freeze remarkably well.The cropping season for Buckingham Tayberries is from the beginning of July to the end of August.
Cultivation is easy - any decent well drained soil will do, ideally in a sunny spot although they will take a touch of shade. Tayberry plants should be set at least 2 metres apart and the canes need to be trained on straining wires (make them strong as the fruit can be heavy). Fruiting is on the previous year's growth and canes that have fruited should be completely cut out.
