A popular blackberry-raspberry hybrid valued for its juicy edible fruits.

The berries ripen from early to midsummer. Deciduous.

LoreThe name blackberry is a misnomer because this isn't a true berry. It's a drupe, an entirely different sort of fruit. The genus Rubus includes many different plants collectively known as "brambles" because they share viney growth and wickedly sharp thorns.
Average Size at MaturityFast growing, trailing canes to 4 ft. tall, 6 ft. wide.
Bloom TimeSpring
Design IdeasPlant this tasty berry near a fence, wall or wherever you can provide plenty of support and room for its fruit-laden canes. Grow as a freestanding shrub in a large garden bed and stake canes. This berry is an excellent addition to the fruit and kitchen garden.

Leave newer canes to produce next season's crop; train on trellis.
