Product Description

Black Magic™ is a double-cropping blackberry variety that will set a large summer crop, a later fall crop, and may even produce fruit throughout the summer, depending on conditions! Upright, self-supporting and lightly thorny canes are easy to maintain and have impressive heat tolerance. In our research garden, we've seen these hardy blackberries breeze through hot days in excess of 100° F, still producing their delicious fruit. With such a large crop, their uses are endless! If you don't eat them all right off the canes, then you'll love them in jams and pies, reduced in sauces and poured into home ice cream machines, or simply spooned over pound cake with a dollop of whipped cream. Zones 5-9. U.S. Patent No. 24,249
