Ebano variety originated in Pelotas, RS, from joint work between Embrapa Clima Temperado and the University of Arkansas (USA) in 1983.
The canes of Ebano blackberry are prostrate, requiring support, and have no thorns. It produces very well in the cooler areas of the Brazil region.
The fruits are medium-sized, weighing between 4 and 6 grams. They are late ripening, approximately 40 days later than the Brazos cultivar. The full bloom осоrrе in mid-November in Brazil.
The fruits are recommended for processing only, as they have a predominantly acidic and astringent taste. However, they can be used in the form of pulp for jams, juices, sorbets and yogurts.
