According to the breeder, Hunter is ‘The result of a decade of selection for growing in UK conditions'.

It is very hardy and will grow as far North as Lancashire!

Maturing up to four weeks earlier than most, it has a more compact, open habit with slightly smaller fruit and an excellent flavour.

It is a good storage variety.
