Grosse Lisse

“Best Seller”

Over the years we have sold millions of this very popular variety. There are some Italian blokes out there that just will not grow anything else. They just love the heavy fruit and the good flavour. It is a little later to fruit than some of the newer varieties, but it is ever reliable. I would however recommend you grow some other varieties as well, to widen your window of harvest. Try Rouge de Marmande for much earlier fruit.

This plant is a tall grower, so pinch out early sideshoots. Two main leaders (branches) should be developed although the plant will cope with many leaders if well fed. If you have more branches, you will get more fruit, but of a slightly smaller size.
