Blackberry Plants - Hardy Black
(Rubus fruticosis 'Hardy Black') Perennial. Zone 4. Thorny.
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.**
