Bushy, upright-growing plants with fine, pointed leaves, which are ideal for growing in a mixed ornamental border as well as in the fruit garden. The heavy crops of berries start out bright green, turning pale pink and finally, when they mature in August/September, deep rose-pink. They have a delicious sweet taste, with a pleasant, solid texture and are superb eaten fresh or cooked in puddings and pies. Height after 7-10 years, approximately 1.5m (5'). Supplied in a 1.3 litre pot.
The extraordinary varieties (bar Pear Schweizerhose), have been bred by Lubera, a Swiss nursery owned by Markus Kobelt. He is passionate about fruit, and continually strives to create new and improved varieties that are easier to cultivate (all will thrive in the UK climate), more resistant to disease and always better-tasting too.
