Blackberries (Schwartzenbeeren)

1 Review | Write a Review
(Solanum nigrum) 75 days—Also called “blaubeeren.” Attractive 2- to 3-foot plants yield clusters of pea-sized black berries. Brought to Kansas by Volga German immigrants about 1875, and still appreciated by their descendants, who grow and use them in such traditional recipes as Kuchen, Maultaschen, Klump and Knebel . (Eat only fully ripe, dark blue-black berries showing no green, as unripe berries may be poisonous.)

What are the pros? Prolific and Delicious

What are the cons? more berries than i can use


Buy this once and you will have them forever. They reseed everywhere. So easy to grow and produce copious amounts of berries that are relatively easy to pick in volume. No thorns, brambles or tangling vines with which to contend. There are many warnings about these berries being poisonous, but I've not had the slightest reaction from eating liters of them. I don't eat them green, naturally, but wait until they are dark purple/black at which time they will drop from the stem with a gentle brush of your hand. I hold a cup underneath and knock them off. At this point, I eat them right there in the garden. A few have made it to the kitchen where I've made jelly with them.
