The Lowberry® Little Black Prince is a breakthrough in the breeding of blackberries for gardens and terraces/patios: it is thornless, it does not need a cumbersome support (because its shoots are stable and upright) and it bears fruit directly on this year's canes. And most importantly, Lowberry® Little Black Prince® already bears large, regularly shaped, tasty, black blackberries from the beginning of July and the harvest does not cease until the first frosts. And then there is another advantage in which this new blackberry variety from the Lubera breeding programme differs from all other blackberries: it is extremely compact and does not grow higher than 70-100 cm. This makes it ideal for using as a potted plant on a balcony or terrace.
Cultivation: Bears fruit on one-year-old canes, already in the first year if planted in March
Growth: Thornless, stable, compact, does not grow higher than 70-100 cm
Maturity: Mid-August to early October on the new canes; the maturity of last year's side shoots is earlier, from the beginning to the end of July
Fruits: Medium-sized, glossy, black blackberries; they are sweet and have a refreshing acidity when fully ripe
Growth: The shoots branch out only a little and form mostly terminal flower buds and fruits; the plant gets bushier every year and bears more fruit, as much light as possible, plant/place in full sun
