Orus 1431 Blackberry
I just had my first Orus 1431 blackberry. One word: yum.
The berries are large, with very small seeds, and a nice rich flavor, with a very subtle hint of wine.
I have no idea how well the plant will handle cold weather. It was in a pot this spring and I moved all the blackberries and boysenberries inside every time the weatherman said it would freeze overnight.
I intend to provide winter protection for my blackberries and boysenberries, but the Orus 1431 is supposed to be relatively cold hardy. I'm not leaving it unprotected to find out if it can take 10 below.
