Grow in slightly acidic, well-drained soil with a PH level between 5.6 – 7.0. Full sun or partial shade.
Black raspberries can easily grow 3m in one year and bear fruit in the first season. Our Black raspberry variety has multiple fruit flushes but generally starts fruiting during the middle of the summer season around December and can continue right through winter if not too harsh.
They will thrive in moisture-retentive, fertile, slightly acidic soils, which are well-drained and weed free. They dislike soggy soils and shallow chalky soils. For best results, plant in a sheltered, sunny position; although they will tolerate part shade.
