Abstract

This invention relates to a new and distinct variety of blackberry plant named ‘DrisBlackSix’, particularly characterized by high yields, long production season and vigorous plants, is disclosed.

Description

Genus and species: Rubus L. subgenus Rubus.
Variety denomination: ‘DrisBlackSix’.
BACKGROUND OF THE NEW PLANT
The present invention relates to a new and distinct blackberry cultivar designated ‘DrisBlackSix’ and botanically known as Rubus L. subgenus Rubus. This new blackberry variety was identified in Santa Cruz County, Calif. in June 2005 and originated from a cross between the female parent blackberry plant ‘BF785-1’ (unpatented) and the male parent blackberry plant ‘Driscoll Cowles’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 14,780). The original seedling of the new cultivar was first asexually propagated by tissue culture and root cuttings at a nursery in Santa Cruz County, Calif. in 2005. ‘DrisBlackSix’ was subsequently asexually propagated by tissue culture and root cuttings and underwent further testing at a nursery in Santa Cruz County, Calif. from 2010 to 2012. The present invention has been found to be stable and reproduce true to type through successive asexual propagations.
Plant Breeder's Rights for this variety have not been applied for. ‘DrisBlackSix’ has not been made publicly available or sold more than one year prior to the filing date of this application.
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 County, Calif.
    • 1. High yields;
    • 2. Long production season; and
    • 3. Vigorous plants.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
This new blackberry plant is illustrated by the accompanying photographs which show the plant's canes, fruit, and leaves. The colors shown are as true as can be reasonably obtained by conventional photographic procedures. The photographs are of plants that are 4 years old.
FIG. 1 shows a section of a young cane without spines.
FIG. 2 shows the flowers and the fruit at various stages.
FIG. 3 shows the upper and lower surfaces of the leaves.
DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW VARIETY
The following descriptions of ‘DrisBlackSix’ are based on observations made in Santa Cruz County, Calif. on 4-year old plants. 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. ‘DrisBlackSix’ has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. Color terminology follows The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, London (R.H.S.) (2007 edition). Descriptive terminology is from the Plant Identification Terminology, An Illustrated Glossary 2nd edition, by James G. Harris and Melinda Woolf Harris, unless where otherwise defined.
