Lowberry Blackberry Little Black Prince cultivar was introduced by Lubera AG from Switzerland as the world's first compact autumn blackberry. The Lowberry Little Black Prince is a breakthrough in the breeding of blackberries for gardens and terraces (patios) - it is thornless, it does not need a cumbersome support, because its canes are vigorous and erect, and it bears fruit directly on primocanes. And most importantly, Lowberry Little Black Prince already bears medium-large, regularly shaped, tasty, black blackberries from the beginning of July and the harvest does not finish until the first frosts. And then there is another advantage in which this new blackberry variety from the Lubera breeding program differs from all other blackberries - it is extremely compact and does not grow higher than 70-100 cm. This makes it ideal for using as a potted plant on a balcony or terrace.

Just after having introduced the first primocane blackberry variety from our breeding program (Direttissima Montblanc), we are going forward with the first primocane balcony blackberry! it is thornless, primocane and supercompact, growing only 60-80cm.... so the first ever blackberry which can easily be cultivated on balconies and terraces, in pots from 10lt on.
