Blackberry Bush

Rubus subgenus Rubus Watson 'Black Satin'

This thornless, heat tolerant blackberry is a prolific producer of deliciously sweet and juicy, deep blue-black berries - that can be harvested without getting pricked by thorns! Small, soft pink flowers appear on second year wood, the semi-erect canes yielding a reliable crop of large blackberries in midsummer. Deciduous.
