DESCRIPTIONBlack Jewel is a variety of black raspberry that is characterised by strong growth, reaching up to 2 meters in height. Very fertile. Bears fruit on the previous year's canes. It ripens from June to October. It produces large, spherical, black fruit with excellent flavour - ideal for preserves, and above all for direct consumption. This variety is recommended for allotments and gardens.
ADVICESThis shrub is best planted in a sunny or semi-shade position. Keep in mind that the soil should be fertile, moist, and light. The optimum pH is in the range of 5,5-6,2.
The shrub should be planted shallowly, so that the roots are covered with about 2cm of soil. The soil should be pressed down firmly. If planted in the autumn, after planting, mound earth over the roots to protect them from frost. Freshly planted raspberries should be cut above the third bud eye. After harvesting, two year old shoots should be removed, leaving only young shoots that will produce fruit the following year. Mature plants require support.
