Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Rubus fruticosus 'Black Magic' PPAF
  • Height: 4 feet
  • Spacing: 3 - 4 feet
  • Depth: Plant at same depth as in the nursery. Plant so the roots are below soil level.
  • Spread: 4 feet
  • Sun/Shade: Full sun
  • Pollinator: Self pollinating.
  • Yield: Approximately 4 - 6 quarts at maturity.
  • Foliage: Dark green foliage.
  • Fruit: Glossy deep wine to black, large fruit, most well over quarter size in diameter.
  • Form: Upright, erect, self-supporting canes.
  • Flower Form: White single blooms, first flush in May, with blooms intermittently throughout the Summer, and then again in August/September.
  • Soil Requirements: Well-drained, rich, slightly acidic moist soil. 5.5- 6.8 pH
  • Growth Rate: Medium growth rate.
  • Pruning: How you should prune erect and trailing blackberries varies slightly. All cultivars require very little pruning or training during the planting year. Differences in pruning and training between erect and trailing blackberries: Top the primo canes of erect cultivars during the Summer. Don't top trailing cultivars during the growing season. Shorten the laterals of erect cultivars.
  • Comments: Double cropper, excellent heat tolerance, blooming & setting fruit in Arkansas in August at 101 degree F temperatures, still good setting- compared to all of the other varieties that have shut-down at this point in the heat (if they set flowers, the blooms burn up), doesn't have the post harvest quality that commercial industry needs (only because some of the berries may turn red in storage), shorter self-supporting plants, good quarter plus sized, chunky fruit, firm, nice flavor- rich, complex, sweet-tart, perfect balance of sugars & acids. Slightly thorny plants.
