Blackberry – ‘Black Butte’ – First of the season 2nd July 2022

Blackberry – ‘Black Butte’ definitely is the first of the season. It is the biggest, earliest and surprising tastes of blackberries.

Its size is amazing, over twice the size of a wild blackberry, it is normally ready to pick about the middle of July. But this year it is ready now the 2nd July 2022.

Considering this plant is growing in a field environment, in heavy clay, with no additional watering or feeding. It is amazing. Caught me out as I did not expect it to be so early this year.
