Blackberry Himalayan Giant

Blackberry Himalayan Giant

A hugely productive, late-fruiting blackberry, Rubus armeniacus Himalayan Giant is a monster of a plant, and suitable for only the largest gardens. It’s a rambling, very thorny, exceptionally vigorous, deciduous shrub, producing very long canes which need strong supports, but is ideal for making a fruiting windbreak or barrier along a boundary, where it will deter livestock and trespassers alike! Blackberry Himalayan Giant bears enormous crops on canes in their second year, up to 25lb/11kg from a single plant. The fruit is medium-sized, reddish-black and slightly acid, better for culinary rather than dessert use.
