Jewel Black Raspberry
Rubus idaeus 'Jewel Black'
|Description||Firm, large black fruit full of rich flavor on vigorous, cold-hardy plants. Prolific white spring flowers herald delicious summer fruit. An ideal choice for canning and baking. Produces fruit on second-year wood. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 2 to 3 ft. tall and wide.|
|Care||Provide fertile, mildly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system. Feed before new growth begins in spring. After harvest, prune to ground older canes that have fruited, leaving one-year-old canes to produce next season's crop.|
|Lore||The genus Rubus aka brambles falls into the Rosaceae family and may resemble some of the bramble roses. This group contains most of the berry fruits that are botanically speaking not true berries but drupe fruit. Linnaeus named it from the classical name for raspberries, ruber, meaning red. He chose the species name from the Roman physician Pliny's description of the plants on Mount Ida in Greece. It is a huge genus with over 400 species in North America alone, which causes great taxonomic confusion, as well as many others scattered throughout the Northern Hemisphere.|
