This cultivar selected in 2017 in the Republic of Moldova. Blackberry Relevant was one of the parents of this cultivar.
Bushes are compact, semi-erected, fully thornless. Internodes are very short (about 11 mm). The cultivar grows to approximately 50 cm in height. If Dima (Tiny Black) bush is planted in the semi-shade place, the internodes will lengthen and plant will grow taller. Shading up to two hours a day causes doubling the average length of the internodes, shading with plastic grid increases the leaf surface and extends the distance between nodes up to 35 mm.
Flowers are white, finer than the Relevant variety. Fruit are black, glossy, firm, egg-shaped, ripen in the second half of July. The average weight of a single fruit is about 4 g. Taste is similar to the Relevant variety - sweet and sour.
