Superb variety originating from New Zealand. Karaka Black has long arching stems that bear lobed mid-green leaves and white flowers in Summer. The flowers are followed by exceptionally long and large shiny black fruit that is firm, easy to pick and above all has an excellent flavour. The berries are superb for freezing and ideal for all-purpose use. Very long season running from early July onwards. Karaka Black is quick to establish itself and very easy to grow, it also has an excellent disease resistance to downy mildew. Recommended by the RHS as an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects. A quite outstanding performer!
Cropping season: July-September
