Karaka Black Blackberry Bushes

Description of Karaka Black Plants & Fruit:
Karaka Black has only been available in the UK for a few years and it is already very popular indeed. The fruit size is massive, with shiny skin and a refreshing, mildly acidic flavour that cooks well.
It's really outstanding feature is its long season - the first fruit are ripe in mid-July, then it keeps right on cropping into September!
Because it spends its energy on making big fruit over a long period, Karaka Black is less vigorous than most blackberries, so it's great for small spaces or big pots. Not thornless, but less vicious than most other varieties.

Browse our variety of blackberry plants or see our full range of soft fruit bushes for sale.

Characteristics of Karaka Black Bushes:

  • Self-fertile.
  • Only mildy thorny.
  • Fruit weight can be up to 11g.
  • Cooks well.
  • Crops continuously for up to 8 weeks, from mid-July through to September.
  • Resistant to grey mould (Botrytis) - this also means that it stores well in the fridge.

Growing Karaka Black Blackberry Plants:
Because this plant works so hard to make its monster sized fruit, you will get the best from it by planting in a really sunny spot.
Spacing: These are not very vigorous plants, so you can get away with planting them only 3'6" / 1 metre apart.

Background Information on Karaka Black Blackberry Bushes:
Karaka Black is really a hybrid berry. The parents, Aurora and Comanche, were bred in Oregon and Arkansas respectively, but they were crossed to make Karaka Black in New Zealand.
Karaka blackberry bushes were released in the UK in 2003 and have performed well in tests.


Planting times for barerrot plant is November to April
