Although classed as self-infertile, 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 ones will give you a longer season of delicious fruit.
Fruit is harvested Mid-season harvest, April to May.
