History and description of Medana Tayberry
Medana is the more widely grown slightly thorned variety of Tayberry. Tayberry is a cross between
raspberry and blackberry. The fruit is dark red in colour and longer than a raspberry. It is juicier
but sharper flavoured than raspberry. The fruit ripens over a long period in July and August. For
best flavour it should be allowed to fully ripen to a dark red colour before picking. It is best
used for jams and summer puddings but can also be eaten fresh.
We supply Medana both as smaller field grown bare root and larger container grown plants. The canes
need to be trained on wires either on a sunny wall or on posts with a spacing of about 3m (9ft)
