Edible fruit, Perennials
This hybrid between ‘Aurora’ blackberry and a tetraploid raspberry was made by the Scottish Crop Research Institute in 1979. Its long, trailing, thorny canes can grow very long in a season, but are commonly controlled by pruning and trellising. Roots are perennial, but canes are biennial: they grow to full length the first season. The second season they bear clusters of white flowers that are followed by a heavy crop of big, mild-flavored, dark red to purple-black fruit. Bears earlier than most other blackberries.
This variety of rue is dense and compact, with a fine gray-blue color.
