BLACKBERRY - EBONY X 5
Off all of the many blackberry varieties we have tested over the past 25 years, Ebony has shown to be the most cold hardy(Zone 2-3). Ebony canes produce huge, hanging clusters of large shiny black berries that are very juicy with a sweet-tart flavour. Berries mature over several weeks in late August. Ebony is a self-fertile blackberry with 6 ft rigid, thorny canes that are easy to pick.
If you are not in coldest climate zones but located in zone 4 or warmer, we suggest you try the new thorn-less varieties of blackberries...like Navajo and Perron, which have huge, sweet berries and no thorns! Also you might like try the very first ever-bearing blackberry variety( developed in USA) called Prim-ARC...which produces fruit on the new canes that grow up over the summer.....as well as canes that over-wintered from previous year. If you have a severe winter that kills overwintering canes then you can get a full fruit load from the new canes that shoot from protected roots under the soil...double insurance for berries!
