Description
Firm and easy to pick, these mammoth-sized, dark black shiny berries are, and are some of the largest blackberry fruits we have ever seen! The thorny stems produce a good crop with excellent flavour that can be picked over a very long season from early July onwards. Delicious in desserts, jams and preserves, and excellent for freezing. Blackberry 'Karaka Black' are quick to establish and easy to grow, with excellent resistance to downy mildew. Our 1 year old plants are container grown rather than field grown to provide you with stronger, superior quality plants. Self fertile. Height: 2m (6'). Spread: 2.5m (8').

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 16-20 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 28-32 months.

How to Grow
Grow blackberry plants in a sunny position in any well drained soil. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the ground prior to planting. When growing blackberry plants it is necessary to support the stems on a framework of wires stretched between sturdy 1.8m (6') posts, or trained against a trellis or wall.
More Info
Water well for the first year until blackberry plants are fully established. Train the stems onto their supports as they grow. Cover the plants with netting to protect the crop from birds as blackberry fruits begin to develop. Blackberries can be harvested from July onwards. In autumn, prune the canes which have fruited over summer to ground level. Canes which have not fruited should be 'tied in' to their supports. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the canes to improve moisture retention throughout the summer.
