See all the characteristics

Overradungery Hybrid Blackberry Loh Tay in many garden parameters distinguish favorable characteristics. That is why he got rapid recognition among gardeners of various countries. But its main advantage was high resistance to various diseases and attacks of pests.

History of removal of varieties

Hybrid Black Organic Culture Loch Tape created by the works of breeders from Scotland by cross-polling varieties Loch Ness and SCRI 82417D. According to other data, it happened by crossing the Logan berries with Malina. The resulting variety with juicy and delicious berries was unpretentious. Since 2011, the shrub is cultivated in Russia, because quickly attracting the attention of gardeners from various regions of the country with its unpretentiousness and yield.

Description of varieties

Culture bushes semi-stranded, quickly developing, reach a height of 4-5 m. Saving smooth, sophisticated, light brown shades. Carved leaves, gear, thick, leathery, emerald tones. Porosil germinates with a damaged root system. Inflorescences include 10-12 flowers of light shades, small size. Fruits large, black berries, shiny, with a solid structure.

The root system is branched, powerful, able to collect a significant number of trace elements, protect bushes from diseases of viral or fungal origin. Has high resistance to drought.

Timing of ripening

Fruit of culture starts a year after landing. The first crop is not different. The greatest yield of the bush reaches for 4-5 years of growth. The timing of the berries depend on the specifics of the climatic conditions of the cultivation region. In warm areas, it is proceeded in the end of July, and in northern and moderate latitudes, the deadlines are shifted for 2-3 weeks. The process of ripening fruit stretches for 3-4 weeks.


From one bush, Loch Tay receive up to 15 kg of fruits, but even more for 5 years of life. With a competent agritud, yield increases by another 2-3 kg.

Berries and their taste

Fruits large – the weight of one berry reaches 12 g. In the form of fruit cylindrical or cone. Berry has a rich-black or emerald tint and typical blackboard gloss. Skinny skin, silky, has elasticity. Loche Tey has a sweet taste with light refreshing acid and fruit notes.

The taste of fruit sweet, rich. Juicy berries, excessing pleasant forest fragrances. The dense structure of fruits allows reliable transportation of the crop.

Features of cultivation

For landing, annual seedlings are height in the range of 20-40 cm. The presence of kidneys and lateral branches with urins.

Before boarding, pits, depth and diameter of 30-40 cm. They usually have a distance of 2.5-3 m for convenient care in the future. At the same time, they prepare a special useful mixture consisting of humus and ash. Or apply minudging with potassium, boron, phosphorus, nitrogen and other.

Before boarding the wells, it is watered, and after absorbing water, a seedlock is knocked down in such a way that the kidney of growth is located at a depth of no more than 3 cm. After landing, it should be watering again – about 1.5-2 buckets on the bush. In conclusion, lay a layer of mulch (3-5 cm) from sawdust, peat, bark, dried grass. To stimulate growth produce pruning to a height of 30-40 cm.

Competent care includes a number of model events and procedures: watering, trimming, organization of solar support, shelter for winter time and feeding.

Culture is a drought-resistant, and therefore it is good watering (before it is lifted by low-positioned branches, taking them on a height of 50 cm). This type of irrigation provides access to 15 liters of water to the bush. Watering is carried out in the evenings or in the morning 1 time in 2-3 weeks.

When irrigated, it is important to abide care during the flowering period and aging fruits, because irrigation of watering often leads to a loading of the soil. Finish watering per year is carried out two weeks before shelter bushes for the winter.

Soots of culture can be inclined to land, which negatively reflects on the bushes, complicating care and collecting events. In order to avoid this, the heat system is organized up to 2 m high, with a stretched wire. Blackberry branches are attached to the wire at a height of about 1.5 m.

Choosing a place and soil preparation

Place for disembarkation is selected taking into account the degree of humidity and illumination. The culture of the roots grow into the ground deeper than the raspberry, and therefore the level of groundwater concentration should be monitored, allowing its location at a depth of at least 2 m. According to the degree of lighting, the southern, southwestern or southeastern sides of the plots are well suited. Soil is preferable to weakness or neutral. The soil is suitable if chamomiles and field basins grow on it.

As for the quality of the soil, the culture for him is undemanding. Nevertheless, excellent yields are noted on qualitatively aerated, equipped with organic lands.

Bushes should not be planted after passage crops and strawberries. Greens and legumes are considered good predecessors for them. Prepare the site begin by autumn – eliminate plant residues, drip at a depth of about 40 cm. Then disinfect with a 3% solution of copper sulphate. Consumption – 1 l per 10 m². After a week, the resistance is repeated to a depth of 20 cm, powered by the soil by manure (per 1 m² of 20 kg), 10 kg of sand, 120 g of superphosphate and 60 g of calcined salts.

Frost resistance and preparation for winter

As for the cold, the degree of sustainability of the culture is average – the bushes are not bad to carry the winter at temperatures not lower than -20 ° C. Therefore, in cold areas, their shelter is necessary for the winter. To do this, use the husknik, dry grass, fallen foliage and other. The thickness is quite enough of the shelter layer at 10-15 cm. At the same time, bushes are certainly removed from the heat devices for 12-14 days before cooling. The branches are inclined to the soil, fixing them with brackets, and then they are already covered with their sweetheaves or agrofiber, sprinkling the soil layer in a height of up to 10 cm. After the melting of the snow in the spring shelter is removed, and the branches are suspended again on the trenches.

Diseases and pests

The variety has excellent immunity, but it is worth remembering that the possibility of diseases really exists, like the attacks of pests. Among possible diseases, Loch Theya is celebrated by anthracnose diseases, verticillosis and Botritis.

When the anthracnose marks the occurrence of purple specks on the sheets, and on the stalks – gray. Stains have a red edging. During manifestations of the sickness, the bushes are placed by a compost from peat, manure and soil (3: 1: 1 or 2: 1: 2) during the processing of interprise.

When infected with a verticillosis yellow and dry leaves. For treatment, tobacco or sulfur is performed (with windless weather).

For Botritis, the manifestations on the berries of gray rot. For cure, blackberry is treated with a solution of potassium nitrate.

In addition, Blackberry Loche Tay is sometimes exposed to attacks of malinous beetle, shooting Tibe and weevil.


The variety is breeding, reducing the tops, as well as intentional damage to the root system with the help of shovels so that the bushes have given the roasting processes. Since the beginning of July, several twigs of the one-year-old age are selected, press them to the soil, pinching the tops, and then fall asleep their 10 cm of soil. During the season, a typical care is carried out as adult plants. In the spring, next year, the finished seedling is removed from the plant and transplant in the right place.

With the second method of reproduction, the binding shoots appeared and disembark in the prepared place.
