Lapin

Lapin is a cross between Stella and Van, and ripens a bit later in the season. From Canada in the 1960’s. Large plump fruit - almost like a small plum, black, succulent, tasty and sweet. Quite resistant (more or less) to splitting when ripe. Self pollinating though it's better to plant two just in case (and extend the season).

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
