These plants are very similar to Tayberries, although Wyeberries are much more productive. The dark-red (or with a purple tint) fruits are very flavorful, cohesive, relatively firm and very large (3-4 cm in length, up to 15 g in weight per berry). Anastasia Wyeberry plants are moderately thorny, very vigorous and more cold hardy than Tayberry and Loganberry. Bushes have creeping habit and need a good strong trellis, because yield is very high by total weight. But fruit quantity is not numerous. Blooming starts in late April, harvesting season is early - first berries ripen in the second week of June. Pests and disease resistant is very good. Anastasia Wyeberry likes sun places, but heat tolerance is fair.
