Jessie Habgood

Back to Cultivars Next

Raised by Woolman and released in 1948, sported Primrose and released by Woolman in 1956. Howard Minns and I had Jessie irradiated in 2000 and from this I had a Cream sport. I released this in 2003.
I root cuttings around mid January for 2nd crown, 1st stop 21st March, 2nd stop one break 15th May and the other 25th May. I only use a 9” pot, as they don’t require as much water as most other varieties. Since merristem culture has made them more reliable I give full feeds.
1st March rooting is early enough for 1st crown with a stop 20th May
