Plant history & use:

The black raspberry, Rubus occidentalis, is a black colored variant of the more common red raspberry, Rubus ideaus. As can be seen above, however, they are two completely different species. The black raspberry is described as highly disease resistant, easy to grow and early bearing. The black raspberry is also more resistant to heat and drought. The berries keep their shape for several days in the fridge after harvesting.

The black raspberry has also been called the "King of Berries" due to its reputed health benefits. The berries contain high levels of antioxidants and also anthocyanins (the group of substances that give fruits and vegetables their dark color - blue/purple/black) which have an anti-inflammatory effect and are also linked to processes in the body in the form of improved memory and increased eyesight .

The variety 'Black Jewel' has berries with a high sweetness and a pleasant aftertaste that remains after the berries have been eaten. The berries have a glossy appearance and make an eye-catching addition to the cultivation.

The berries can be both dried and frozen for later use. They are good in smoothies. You can also make jam and juice from black raspberries.

Culture:

Grow in a well-drained soil in a sunny location. They thrive best in a sandy soil rich in humus. To give the plant a humus-rich soil, you can then crowd plant residues (e.g. grass clippings) into the top layer of soil or cover the soil with a layer of plant residues.

It may be good to note that the black raspberry is a tall-growing raspberry species, the bush normally grows 2-3 meters high.
