My Tayberry is sprouting. The leaves on it are much, much bigger than the leaves on my Blackcurrant, Red currants and White currants. Which surprises me as my Raspberries have yet to show.
Tayberries fruit on last year’s growth so I’m hoping that the stems that were left behind when I pruned it are the right ones. This year I think I will prune it as I harvest the fruit so as not to confuse the stems. I also forgot how very, very prickly my Tayberry is. It’s almost viscous!
But it’s nice to see it coming to life again. The fruit we had from it last year were so… gorgeous, they didn’t even make it to the kitchen. They were eaten on the spot. They’re that kind of fruit. Others are cherry Tomatoes, Peas, Raspberries and Strawberries. They all seldom make it inside the house too :)
