Bristol Black Raspberry


Bristol Black Raspberry

Rubus spp. Midsummer. Watson Prolific x Honeysweet. NY Stn intro, Geneva, NY, 1934.

Medium-large firm glossy black fruit with excellent sweet blackberry-like flavor very distinct from reds. Hardy, vigorous and high-yielding. They ripen earlier in central Maine than most raspberries. USDA has found black raspberries to have some of the highest levels of antioxidants of any cultivated fruit.

Black raspberries, also called black caps, bear on second-year canes (floricanes). Plant in hills. Unlike red raspberries, which sucker and spread, black caps stay put unless you let the long canes arch way out and root themselves in the ground. Tolerant of powdery mildew. Z4. (plugs)
