Rubus fruticosus ‘Black Satin’

Tasty Green, 100% organically grown fruit. This means that only plant and animal materials have been used during cultivation. The pot and label are made of recycled plastic and are therefore a clean solution for the environment.
‘Rubus Fruticosus Black Satin’ is a vigorously growing, thornless black blackberry. The shrub has dark green, oval, serrated leaves. It has a long harvest time and produces large, shiny fruits that contain a lot of juice. Blackberries are green at first, then turn red and finally take on that beautiful dark purple-black colour. They are full of minerals and sweet. The fact that the bushes do not have prickles does not affect the taste of the fruit, but they are more child-friendly without them. The pink flowers of this blackberry are very striking. The flowers are pollinated by bees and bumblebees, so you only need one plant to get fruit. Nevertheless, it is nice to plant several blackberries. You can, for example, choose different varieties next to each other. The plants can be planted at 1.5 to 3 metres from each other. The plants can withstand shade, but give more fruit in a sunny and sheltered spot. Thick branches should be tied back in the spring, as they give the best fruit. Cut back everything that is too much. Use a wall or fence to guide the branches with wires. The wires can also be stretched between two posts. Blackberries bear fruit on stems that were formed the previous year. Prune regularly, both in spring and autumn. After the harvest, completely prune away the branches that have borne the fruit. Regular pruning also prevents the spread of diseases.
