Description:

This thornless, heat tolerant blackberry is a prolific producer of deliciously sweet and juicy, deep blue-black berries - that can be harvested without getting pricked by thorns! Small, soft pink flowers appear on second year wood, the semi-erect canes yielding a reliable crop of large blackberries in midsummer. Deciduous.

Provide fertile, mildly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system. Feed before new growth begins in spring. After harvest, prune to ground older canes that have fruited, leaving one-year-old canes to produce next season's crop. Train newer canes on trellis.

History

Blackberry plants produce long stems that grow from the ground - called primocanes and floricanes. Primocanes are canes in their first year of growth, while floricanes are canes that are in their second year of growth. 'Black Satin' produces its blackberries on floricanes, so pruning should be timed to take advantage of this two-year growth cycle.

Verdict is still out
by Conner, June 17, 2017

My blackberry looked awesome when it arrived. I planted it within a few days (in a large pot) and gave it a trellis. I noticed that within a few days the fruit was drying up before becoming mature. After a month, I'm still having a difficult time getting it to produce edible berries. I'm hoping that with extra attention it will thrive. I've followed all the recommendations, so hopefully soon.
