Pollination is by larger birds such as Thrushes and Black Birds. These birds will travel some distance for their food and therefore pollination in the home garden is generally not an issue with 1 plant.. Remember though planting 2 different varieties will give you a longer season of delicious fruit.
Fruit is harvested Mid-season harvest, April to May. Fruit is ready when it changes colour and drops when touched.
Flowering occurs at the base of the new season\'s growth. It is, therefore, essential to prune early in the season (if pruning is required) to ensure growth happens for flowering to occur. Pruning is required to maintain the desired shape and stimulate the production of flowering wood.
