Very sweet, large, long, purplish-black fruit bears in mid-June, before hot weather sets in. Semi-upright, self pollinating. Listed as mostly thornless, where it would send out occasional thorns but is not covered severly like some varieties can be.
After fruit is harvested, cut stems back to the soil surface.
Blackberries produce fruit on one year old stems. As soon as fruit is harvested, you may cut stems back or wait until spring pruning time.
