A delicious fruit with lovely long trailing vines and dark, reddish-black coloured berries that are a cross between the Thornless Blackberry and a Raspberry. It has a sweet tangy flavour with a distinctive aroma and is very high in vitamin C. It's great eaten fresh off the tree but is most popular for making jams and pies.
