‘Glen Coe’ is a mid-season, summer-fruiting (floricane) raspberry hybrid that was raised by the Scottish Crop Research Institute. A hybrid bred from ‘Glen Prosen’ and an unnamed thornless black raspberry; ‘Glen Coe’ is raspberry with a fantastic flavour!
I ordered my first ‘Glen Coe’ raspberry plants over 10 years ago. I adored these sweet and tangy, intensely flavoured raspberries. However, when my raspberry plants fruited, their fruit didn’t have as rounded a shape as the ‘Glen Coe’ raspberries I’d seen in promotional photographs from online fruit nurseries.
