Loch Tay Blackberry Bushes

Description of Loch Tay Plants & Fruit:
Loch Tay is a really handy little plant. Compact, upright and thornless, it comes into season early. While the berries are not so big, they have an excellent fruity burst flavour.

Browse our variety of blackberry bushes or see our full range of soft fruit plants for sale.

Characteristics of Loch Tay Bushes:

  • Self-fertile.
  • Thornless.
  • Upright growth.
  • Fruit weight is around 3.5g
  • Rich & sweet - one of our favourites!
  • Crops from late July for about 4 weeks.

Growing Loch Tay Blackberry Plants:

Generally, blackberries are grown along wires, but Loch Tay is an upright variety. You can grow it up a single post or in with a row of raspberries.
Spacing: You can plant Loch Tay quite close together in a row. 4' / 1.2 metres apart is more than enough.

Read our detailed information on how to grow blackberries here.

Background Information on Loch Tay Blackberry Bushes:

Bred from the other excellent upright thornless blackberry, Loch Ness, at the former Scottish Crop Research Institute near Dundee, which is now called the James Hutton Institute.
