Rubus (Blackberry & Raspberry)

Easy-to-grow and delicious super fruits

The perfect blend of tart and sweet, ripe berries are one of nature's best treats. These upright bushes bear small blooms in spring, followed by buckets full of juicy berries (actually drupelets) in summer. Asking only for full sunshine and good air circulation, they benefit from being cut back the first year for bigger crops to come. And though they are a delicacy, blackberries and raspberries are also extremely nutritious, bearing high concentrations of vitamins C and K, fiber, and many antioxidants. Grow and enjoy them in good health.
