Why plant Jewel Black Raspberry?
Blackberries are the superfood of your backyard! Jewel Black Raspberries are just that - the jewels of berry growing! Considered one the largest black raspberry varieties with a glossy finish! The rich flavor and plump size make it hard to save some for jam making or pie baking! A winter-hardy treat and reliable grower; plant this jewel this spring and eat your weight in berries!
Jewel Black Raspberry was bred by the Cornell Small Fruit breeding program in Geneva, New York. Black raspberries are high in antioxidants that may help with the prevention and curing of cancer. This is due to the anthocyanins compounds, the compound responsible for the black raspberries' dark color. Anthocyanin is found in cancer-treating medications.

How To Plant Jewel Black Raspberry
Raspberries thrive best in soil with mildly acidic conditions rich in organics, moist, and well-draining. Full sun is best; however, raspberries tolerate part shade; fruit crops may be less plentiful when plants are exposed to shade. Raspberries are self-fertile and do not require another variety to cross-pollinate.
How To Water
Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
How To Prune
Canes that have fruited should be pruned back and removed; new canes will grow back and produce fruit. Suckers may develop roots if not pruned back to prevent further growth.
