Prefers deep soil. Deep rooted plant. Generally prefers a cool, humid region
where it can be planted in full sunlight. Blackberries will produce in warmer
climates than most raspberries. Plant 2-4 ft. apart in rows 6-9 ft. apart.
BLACK SATIN (Thornless)
Medium to large. Black. Honey sweet flavor. Vigorous grower, excellent for home
gardens. Heavy yielding semi-erect thornless type with improved quality and
hardiness, rarely suckers, very disease resistant. Hardy to about -15 degrees F
( Zone 5b). Ripens: July.
The first fully erect, self supporting thornless blackberry. Superior medium
sized fruit - more sweet and less tart than other thornless varieties. Ripens
June to July.
Most adaptable to climates and soils, most productive per square foot of garden
space, and most variable in use within the Blackberry family. Plant 2-4 ft.
apart in rows 6-9 ft. apart.
Medium, reddish-black berry. Not as tart as blackberries. Good for mild winter
areas. Popular with home owners because it is thornless. Hardy to Zone 7. Needs
winter protection below 10 degrees F. Ripens: June.
Grows best in areas having a slowly warming, lingering spring. Plant 2-4 ft.
apart in 6-8 ft. rows in well drained soils. Ripening: Spring/Summer-bearing
cultivars produce canes that are biennial in habit, growing one year and
producing the next. Everbearing (fall-bearing) cultivars produce canes that
bear fruit on the top portion of the current season’s growth in late summer and
fall (usually late August to early October). If you leave these canes for next
year, they will bear fruit on the portions that did not fruit the previous fall.
Therefore this type can produce fruit in both June-July on the base of last
year’s cane and late summer/early fall on top of current season’s cane. The
earlier crop is usually small.
