    Default Tayberry, Buckingham. Any thoughts please.

    I want to buy the Buckingham thornless Tayberry, but have read the RHS trial of this variety which says it has poor quality fruit and low yield.

    http://apps.rhs.org.uk/planttrials/T...02013-2015.pdf page 14.

    This is strange as the RHS is selling this variety.

    I have not found any thing else anywhere to substantiate this. Could the RHS have tested a rogue batch? What experience do other people have?

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Andrew

    Just cut mine back after fruiting.

    Maybe it's the soil but I find it less vigorous, less prolific and less tasty than the thorny one I grew at a previous house.

    I grow both and agree with the above - the thornless one is OK, but not as good from a fruit pov

    I think mine is heading for shredder. Disappointing.
