Rubus fruticosus, Blackberry 'Reuben' is a remarkable new variety which not only produces berries the size of small plums, but produces them on current season's wood!- the first blackberry to do this. The glossy, sweet, juicy fruit can be eaten fresh or used for jams, jellies and pies.

Plant in well prepared, well-drained soil enriched with well-rotted manure or compost, in sun or light shade. Space plants at 2m intervals. Provide support on wires on a trellis or fence or on a post and wire structure. Cut old canes down to the ground after fruiting and tie in new canes for the next season's fruit. Alternatively, for 2 smaller crops, cut canes which have fruited in autumn by half after cropping. These will produce a further crop in early summer, after which cut to the ground. Tie in new canes to crop in autumn. Mulch with spent hops or compost in spring.

British nursery grown.
