Released in 2005, the Obsidian blackberry was developed in Oregon and has Marion, Olallie and Boysen berries in its parentage. The berries are large, of good firmness, with small to medium sized seeds, a deep black color, and are of excellent flavor. They are an early harvest variety, with ripe fruit often available in mid to late June. Obsidian Blackberries can be eat fresh if found at local markets, or can be frozen for year round use.
