The bramble is a plant of the Rosaceae family, which belongs to the Rubus genus. Its fruits, blackberries, grow on perennial shrubs with small serrated leaves. Unlike the sharp-tasting wild variety, the bramble is thornless.
Sant’Orsola cultivates the Loch Ness and Chester varieties. In order to meet our quality standards, Sant’Orsola blackberries must be whole and clean without any damage or marks on their surface. The calyx should not be attached and the fruits must be firm and regular in shape. Their solid, black color stands out for its brilliance. The predominantly acidic flavor of our blackberries is very intense on the palate.
The bramble bush’s white and pink- colored flowers blossom at the beginning of spring.
The benefits and medicinal properties of blackberries have been recognized since ancient times. The blackberry was even mentioned in classical Latin and Greek books (such as Aesop’s “The Fox and the Bramble”) as well as in others popular tales.
Sant’Orsola’s blackberry plants are treated with a highly reduced use of phytosanitary treatment, 70% lower than the limits imposed by law. We only choose treatments with the lowest environmental impact and we use them on plants only when strictly necessary, to protect them. All Sant’Orsola’s crops are regulated by the “Sant’Orsola Procedural Guidelines for Integrated Pest Management”, in compliance with the national integrated production guidelines.
We are fragile, handle us with care! Keep in the fridge between +4° and +8° degrees and wash just before serving.
