Bred by Vicky Knight at EMR East Malling, this new selection looks set to make the biggest impact on the UK raspberry industry since the release of Glen Ample. Derived from a Glen Ample - EM5928/114 cross and trialled as EM6512/50, this variety was named after the Roman month of August. Its commercial potential derives from the combination of a very late season with high quality firm fruit of excellent flavour.
