Bristol Black Raspberry

Midsummer. Watson Prolific x Honeysweet. NY St Ag Exp Stn intro, Geneva, NY, 1934.

Medium-large firm glossy black fruit with excellent sweet blackberry-like flavor very distinct from reds. Hardy, vigorous and high-yielding. They ripen earlier in central Maine than most raspberries.

The USDA has found black raspberries to have some of the highest levels of antioxidants of any cultivated fruit.

Unlike red raspberries, which sucker and spread, “black caps” stay where they are planted unless you let the long canes arch way out and root themselves in the ground. Pile a little soil over the rooting spot and in a year or so you’ll have plants to spread around the neighborhood.

Black raspberries bear on second-year canes (floricanes). Susceptible to anthracnose and tolerant of powdery mildew. Z4. (certified virus-free bare-root plants)
