My Tayberry is in its second year and is fruiting like mad again. The fruits are ready slightly earlier this year (must have been all the good weather we had in April). As last year they still looked like this in the first week of June.
But these beauties are definitely ready for eating – and that’s exactly what I plan to do! I reckon I’ve got maybe 15 – 20 Tayberries this year. Not bad for a pot grown plant.
The plant itself seems to be doing well too, vigorous and healthy. I did have some trouble with tiny caterpillars eating the leaves but that was just me not being very vigilant and it doesn’t seem to have affected the fruit at all.
The pot is fairly big and against a south-facing, sandstone wall that gets quite warm in the sun and then radiates heat back out. Ideal for fruit really. Although I’m a bit worried about it getting pot bound so I might check if it needs repotting at the end of the season.
Other than that, roll on the Tayberries!
