Blackberry Plants - Hardy Black
(Rubus fruticosis 'Hardy Black') Perennial. Zone 4. Thorny.
* Available as a single plant or in a bundle of three plants. *
This type of blackberry was developed here in The Maritimes in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley and grown by the Balsor family for over a century.
Hardy Black produces exceptionally large, firm and very sweet berries that come on in late Summer. Canes will begin producing fruit in their second year.
** To regenerate your blackberry patch, and to keep it under control, cut down the canes that set fruit in the Fall. In late Winter, thin remaining canes to 4-5 canes per 2.5 square feet. We also recommend trimming/mowing the borders of the blackberry patch regularly to prevent unwanted runners.**
