Variety description

Strictly speaking, Dorman Red' is a raspberry hybrid (Rubus parviflorus x Rubus idaeus 'Dorset'), but its habit is very reminiscent of a classic blackberry. The hybrid produces large, bright red fruits that are densely packed in clusters. The berries are raspberry-like, ripen slowly and taste more like mulberries (Morus). 'Dorman Red' grows like a blackberry but only reaches about 150cm tall and also has dark green foliage like a blackberry. The rods are somewhat studded with spikes, but these are not particularly significant. 'Dorman Red' bears on two-year-old wood. The old canes are cut off close to the ground in late autumn, like classic blackberries. The variety is also suitable for cultivation in tubs.
