Yummy, it's almost Tayberry time!

I'm a bit of a pig when it comes to summer soft fruits, but without doubt the Tayberry is one of my favourites... and the ones in my garden are ripening nicely.

First cultivated in Scotland the Tayberry is a cross between a blackberry and a raspberry. The fruit is sweeter, larger and more aromatic than that of the loganberry (also a blackberry and raspberry cross) and can be eaten raw or cooked.

My Tayberry bush is heavy with fruit; these berries are perfect when they are just turning purple and I am looking forward to bowls of sweet colourful berries served with rich vanilla ice-cream as an evening treat. ­čśő
