Obsidian Blackberry Bushes

Description of Obsidian Plants & Fruit:
An early cropping variety with mightily big, beautifully glossy fruit, the Obsidian blackberry tops it off by being one of the heaviest croppers around.
Be patient - the fruit will aquire their best flavour only when they have turned totally black.

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

Characteristics of Obsidian Bushes:

  • Self-fertile.
  • Thorny.
  • Fruit weight can be up to 6-7g.
  • Crop size can be up to 13kg.
  • Keep their colour & shape quite well when frozen.
  • Crops in August.

Growing Obsidian Blackberry Plants:

Because it's such a big cropper with large fruit, we do recommend a sunny spot to get the most out of Obsidian. Plant them 2 metres apart.

Read our detailed information on how to grow blackberries here.

Background Information on Obsidian Blackberry Bushes:

An American breed, created in 1993-1995 by the US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS to its friends).
Its parents are from a series of blackberries known simply as ORUS - it probably won't help much to know that it was ORUS 828-43 and ORUS 1122-1 that gave rise to Obsidian (a.k.a. ORUS 1369-3).
The man behind the project was Dr Chad Finn.
