    A tayberry of Scottish origin, ‘Medana’ has reddish-purple fruits, sumptuous as a compôte or purèe enjoyed with yoghurt, ice cream or for a fruity twist, added to your muesli. The fruits freeze well so you can enjoy these tayberries well into the winter. Flowering in spring, this berry is great for bees and other beneficial insects, although this fruit is self-pollinating so will form fruit without them.

  • Garden care: Plant this tayberry as soon as conditions allow and when soil is not frozen or waterlogged. They prefer well-drained soils but we advise keeping the plants well-watered during the first year to help establishment. Tayberries grow best when supported on wires or against a sunny wall at a of approximately 2.5m apart. 'Medana' is a primocane variety that flowers and fruits on the growth made that year. Canes can be cut down to the ground once fruiting has ended. In spring apply a general fertiliser and a mulch of rotted leaves or compost covering the root area.
