Abstract

This invention relates to a new and distinct variety of Blackberry plant named ‘DrisBlackTwo’, which is primarily characterized by spineless canes, medium-sized, ovate fruit that matures to a black color and having a medium time of bud burst, is disclosed.

Description

Genus and species: Rubus L. subgenus Rubus.
Variety denomination: ‘DrisBlackTwo’.
BACKGROUND OF THE NEW PLANT
The present invention relates to a new and distinct Blackberry cultivar designated ‘DrisBlackTwo’ and botanically known as Rubus L. subgenus Rubus. This new Blackberry variety was discovered in Santa Cruz County, Calif. in July 2004 and originated from a cross between the female parent Blackberry plant ‘BH936-6’ (unpatented) and the male parent Blackberry plant ‘Driscoll Cowles’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 14,780). The original seedling of the new cultivar was asexually propagated at a nursery in Santa Cruz County, Calif. ‘DrisBlackTwo’ was subsequently asexually propagated and underwent further testing at a nursery in Santa Cruz County, Calif. for five years. The present invention has been found to be stable and reproduce true to type through successive asexual propagations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The following are the most outstanding and distinguishing characteristics of this new cultivar when grown under normal horticultural practices in Santa Cruz, Calif.
    • 1. Spineless canes;
    • 2. Medium-sized, ovate fruit that mature to a black color; and
    • 3. Having a medium time of bud burst.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
This new Blackberry plant is illustrated by the accompanying photographs, which show the fruit of the plant as well as the canes; the colors shown are as true as can be reasonably obtained by conventional photographic procedures. The photographs are of plants that are 2 years old.
FIG. 1 shows the upper and lower side of the leaves.
FIG. 2 shows immature fruit at various stages as well as mature fruit.
FIG. 3 shows flowers, flower buds and immature fruit.
FIG. 4 shows a section of a spineless young cane.
DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW VARIETY
The following description of ‘DrisBlackTwo’ is based on observations of plants that are 2 years old taken from the 2005 to 2009 growing seasons in Santa Cruz County, Calif. This description is in accordance with UPOV terminology. Color designations, color descriptions, and other phenotypical descriptions may deviate from the stated values and descriptions depending upon variation in environmental, seasonal, climatic and cultural conditions. ‘DrisBlackTwo’ has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. Color terminology follows The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, London (R.H.S.) (2001 edition).
