Description

Wild Blackberry Bush - Rubus fruticosus

Wild Blackberry Bush is a favorite fruit producing bush that can be grown in zones 5 through 10. This plant is known to very hardy, surviving in the poorest of soil conditions. The plant has broad green leaves and tree-like stems that possess thorns. The bush can be somewhat unruly and requires pruning. These thorns can be quite sharp and can wear jeans. It has white flowers before producing the fruit. Many people add them to their landscape for eating the fruit.

Wild Blackberry Bush comes from the family Rosaceae and the subgenus Rubus. They are considered a bramble type of plant growing in a dense thicket. They do have thorns like a rose bush, but newer hybrids that have been made without barbs. They become in the eastern and western hemisphere; they are perennial plants. When the berry fruit is not ripe, it has a red or white color, when ripe they are a thick, black color and are very sweet to eat.

Wild Blackberries Bush is a large plant that grows in almost every weather condition. It does not require lots of skills to maintain and care for the plant. This plant has been in life for over thousands of years, and it has been eaten by humans as well as animals. Its leaves have been a nutritious food for particular types of caterpillars too. It takes about three to four years for the tree to attain maturity and produce fruits. However, the first year of its germination, it forms a new stem called the primocane. During this time, it does not provide any flowers, but it grows some leaves called palmately compound leaves. The leaves have at least five to seven leaflets. During the second year of the tree's growth, the cane becomes stronger hence move from the primocane state to the floricane although it does not grow any longer. It is the second year that the plant's lateral buds break and start to produce flowering laterals with smaller leaves. Each flower is about 2-3cm and is commonly formed during early summer or late spring on short racemes. They have at least five pale pink or white petals. The first and the second year of the trees usually have many little curves with sharp prickles that react as thorns. Wild blackberry bushes are at their best germination around hillsides, colonizing wasteland, hedgerows, vacant lots, and ditches. It is because the plant tolerates poor soils. The berries are red before they are ripe and black when ripe. It is to say berries are red when green.
