The blackberry, also known as the blackberry, is the fruit of the blackberry (Rubus fruticosus), a species related to the raspberry blackberry. Originally a wild fruit bush, it has also gained popularity among breeders who have introduced other cultivars. The tasty, black-coloured fruit gradually ripens from the red-coloured hard fruits. It is distinguished by its texture resembling glossy small spheres and its juiciness. The soft fruits are strongly coloured, easy to digest and process. They are valuable for their high content of fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K, B, A, folic acid, manganese, calcium, iron, phosphorus and others.
Blackberries are one of the most undemanding shrubs in terms of cultivation and care. They do not require much space and can tolerate a variety of soil types. They require permeable soil and an area that is not exposed to too much frost. Although the roots resist frosts well, the flowers may be more sensitive. In general, they often do not suffer from significant diseases, nor do they require major chemical protection. The ideal place for planting blackberries are fences, walls or structures on which the blackberry shoots can be tied. These can be a few metres high. The shoots from the first year produce a crop in the second year. It grows vigorously. Due to the significant proportion of healthful substances and the volume of the crop, it can be an important source of fruit in the ordinary garden. The fruit has versatile uses in hot and cold cooking, confectionery and, above all, when eaten raw. This is when it retains most of its vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It does not ripen all at once, but gradually, so that it yields a harvest within a few weeks.
