The small to medium-size fruits (2-4 g) are grouped in large clusters. Harvest season starts in mid-to-late August, ends in the last week of September. First flowers appear on plants in the beginning of July. Berries are juicy, have glossy black color and natural flavor of wild bramble, but have low firm. Taste is sour mainly. This variety can be grown as decorative fence with regular cropping. Winter hardiness is great, Ashton Cross doesn't need shelter.
