 Woodland Black Cap™ Rubus occidentalis silvis  Woodland Black Cap™ - Black fruit with sweet, rich flavor and loaded with antioxidants. Although R. silvis is the ancestor of what are sometimes called 'black raspberries' or thimbleberry , this is not a berry, but is an aggregate fruit and this variety produces a black 1/2 - 5/8 inch diameter round fruit on the end of the stems that has a much richer and distinctive taste. When the fruit of Rubus occidentalis silvis first forms like a Cap on the end of each stem, it is Light Green then turning white.  As the fruit grows it slowly goes through a spectrum of colors turning a Yellow then through Beige to Pink; then from Bright Red to Deep Red to Purple. Eventually it turns Blue and then Darker Blue.  Time to eat when it is Dark Dark Blue (Black).  All of the colors in one fruit!  Mid-season ripening.  Plant height: 9ft.  Winter hardy to -20F degrees (-30 C.)

Blueberries are a traditional American fruit, used for pies, jellies and jams.  There are two main types: Highbush, or cultivated blueberries and Lowbush, or wild types. Highbush berries grow to a height of 10ft. or more and, generally, have larger fruits .  Lowbush berries grow to only about 3ft. and have smaller berries.  There are varieties of both types that do well in warmer or cooler climates, thus there are Northern highbush, Southern highbush and Northern and Southern lowbush varieties.  Plant at least one plant of two or more varieties to guarantee pollination.

All blueberries prefer a slightly acidic soil with optimum pH at 4.0-5.2.  Soil should be slightly moist, so compact clay soils aren't blueberry-friendly.  If your soil pH is higher, you can lower it by adding quantities of loam, compost (oak leaves are great), or sulfur.  Porosity can be increased by adding peat.  Plant the bushes rather shallowly (no deeper than 6").  Keep the weeds down, but make certain that you don't cultivate deeply around the roots - blueberries have shallow root systems that can be damaged by deep cultivation.  Also, you should choose an area to plant that has good circulation and away from tree roots.  Don't prune until you have about three year's growth, then remove weak shoots.  As the bushes age, they will require heavier pruning, so don't be afraid to "lay into 'em".
