45’s canes make it easy to pick these firm, midnight-black berries. Fruit stores well for longer-term enjoyment. Plants are disease-resistant and cold-hardy. First-year canes begin ripening in mid-July, while second-year canes bear heaviest crops in June. Both continue to fruit until frost. Self-pollinator. Absolute yum!
