  • Growth RateMedium growth rate.
  • PruningHow 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.
  • PollinatorSelf pollinating.
  • CommentsDouble 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.
  • YieldApproximately 4 - 6 quarts at maturity.
  • Botanical NameRubus fruticosus 'Black Magic' PPAF
  • HeaderDelicious Berries Times Three!
  • DepthPlant at same depth as in the nursery. Plant so the roots are below soil level.
