Black Raspberry Royal

Post by Moss »

Black raspberry royal is supposed to be the essence and base for Chambord.

Found it listed in Australia

https://www.onestopbarshop.com.au/still ... 16641.html

Has anyone found it/tried it?

Moss
Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

Cheers

I’ll give it a whirl when it is back in stock.

Nor me. Just checked Love Brewing, and while they list it, even with a cheaper price ATM (£2.50), it's still marked as "out of stock".....

Will have to keep an eye on their site, as it's one that sounds great (and all of the 2 types of Black raspberry plants I had growing in a tub have died (and while they did flower, the resulting fruit was always badly formed and there wasn't enough of it to do anything with - but the Glen Coe raspberries we have in the raised growing bed are great and they're a hybrid of red raspberries and US black raspberries - they come out a deep purple colour and taste marvellous)..........

We have done too well in supporting local wild birds.
This year they ate almost all the apples and plums.
All the damsons, blackberries, loganberries,blackcurrants, redcurrants.
Feckin' disaster year.
And then they try and bring avian flu in to our chucks.

Disgusted of the Scottixh borders.

I thought loganberries were double sized raspberries?
And Tayberries were a thornless version.
We grow them both.
But what do I know?

Loganberries and Tayberries are both crosses between blackberries and red raspberries, the latter being a relatively recent one.

Black raspberries are a species of raspberry that has a much darker color than red raspberries. They are native to North America (we have them growing all around us here) and there are quite a few commercial cultivars. They tend to have a more intense flavour than red raspberries.

Would they be good for juicing? Is that what they are being grown for?

There's at least 2 strains of black raspberries (I had both growing in a half barrell - they came from a nursery that does "specialist" fruit shrubs).

Concluded that they didn't like the half barrel.

Equally, there's many true strains in that any family as well as a number of hybrids. All can be used (AFAIK), just that the taste and colour difference would give a different result..........

Shoots coming up everywhere.

PM me an address.
At some point before the spring, there has to be some serious spade-work!

Ah yes, the downside of any of the blackberry/raspberry family of plants. Very invasive, underground runners, extra shoots, etc.

I know that some of the hybrid types were grown with specific properties. Like "Marionberries" I understand. Chosen for single, long runner/shoot, not many spikes/thorns, large pretty fruit. Apparently developed for ease of cultivation for the iced cream/yoghurt producers - but they don't (again, as I understand it) have a particularly strong flavour, so had to be boosted with one that does etc.

So ED would have to let them grow on some before being able to research and confirm the strain type (and yes, I appreciate that some types are more prevalent in Scotland).

But whatever you have locally, I'd say if you have time, pick them, just be careful as some are more heavily thorned than others.........
