Blackberry

A little on blackberry

The Blackberry is a kind of raspberry. The blackberry is a deciduous shrub, with magnificent white flowers whose fruits ripen when they turn black. Blackberry is often mistaken with a different but very similar fruit – the black raspberry. The main difference between the two is in the core, where the stem attaches to the berry. Blackberries will always have a white core, whereas black raspberries are hollow in the center (just like raspberries). The blackberry is very rich in dietary fibers and vitamin C.

Blackberry varieties we grow and market

Barrison

An early breed (first fruit in April), particularly thorny, with large fruit, sour and very juicy.

Navaho and Arapaho

Both are late breeds, without thorns, with sweet fruits and a good shelf life.

Our Growing Methods

Our blackberries are grown in a variety of methods and substrates:

Soil growth (traditional) in net greenhouse and covered greenhouse

Coco coir substrates in net greenhouse and covered greenhouse

Perlite substrates (semi-hydroponic)

Irrigation and fertilization are measured precisely to the plant needs in the specific substrate in which it grows. We fertilize with customed compounds suitable to the plant needs and recycle irrigation water in advanced systems.

We use integrated pest control methods – biological and organic pesticides. We use, among other things, beneficial insects (such as carnivorous acari and parasitic wasps) that eliminate pests and completely utilize the need for chemical pesticides. After using biological solutions, if necessary, we use pesticides permitted in organic farming.

Quality Assurance and Packing

The sorting process of the blackberries is done carefully and meticulously. The blackberries are picked in full ripening straight to the final punnets.

We market blackberries in 150 gr punnets and the fruit shelf life is about 4 days in cooling.

The fruit is clean from sand, soil, foreign bodies and naturally clean from pesticides and toxins (!) and there is no need to rinse it before serving and eating.
