Black Negub is considered to be a high-yielding variety – from 3.5 to 6.8 kg from the bush, with a stable annual fruiting.

Regions growing

The variety is adapted for middle strip of the Russian Federation.


The plant is planted in autumn and spring, however, preference is given to autumn pore, 1.5 months before the onset of cold. This time is enough so that the root system manage to fix. The most viable is the plants of two or three years. Place for planting Choose solar, permissible mild half, but the grade does not tolerate the proximity of the groundwater and low-spirited wetlands, since such a neighborhood threatens the appearance of root rot.

As for the soil composition, the Black Negub does not make special requirements for the soil, but it is best to develop on sampling or drum soils with neutral acidity. The plot is prepared two weeks before landing, exposing it to cleaning the roots during the rescue, as well as the enrichment of the organic (compost, humid), superphosphate and potash fertilizers, wood ashol.

The size of the planting pit is 50x50x50 cm, heavy earth should be loosen with river sand. Distance between bushes 1.5 meters. The roots are soaked for a while in the solution of stimulants and the root of the formator in accordance with the instructions. When landing the root neck is plugged at 5-6 cm, the soil is compacted and wipes well. The next day, the Earth must be disappeared or immediately covered with a thick layer of peat mulch. There are no more than 5 kidneys on shoots, everything else is cut.

Growing and care

Further care lies in timely irrigation in the first year, with the exception of rainy pores, when there is enough natural moisture. In the future, the bushes are watered 5-6 times per season, especially during the bootonization and ripening of fruits. The gooseberry does not like the upper watering, so it is best to carry out irrigation under the root or drip.

Undercores begin on the third year, entering the soil of the priority circle Superphosphate, potash, phosphoric fertilizers, organic and nitrogen.

The prosecution of the variety to the formation of a set of shoots leads to thickening, so forming and sanitary trimming is necessary. The optimal time for the procedure is autumn, although the spring bushes are also verified for the presence of dried, damaged and not overwhelmed shoots. In the fall removed extra branches growing inside, damaged and affected, as well as broken, weak, curved and horizontal shoots, unless it is planned to obtain. The right bush of 4 or 6 years should consist of 30 strong stems, no more.

After 6 years, the bush enters the time of aging, and since now, annual rejuvenating procedures are needed – all branches over 6-8 years are subject to mandatory removal. On the third and fourth year, they begin to remove root shoots, allowing you to develop only a few, the most stronger trunks. For trimming, you should use an acute secator so that the sections remain smooth, convenient to the processing of garden borants. Spanish powerful bushes need supports. Wooden backup frames are built around single bushes, if the bushes grow row along the boundary of the site, then organize a sleeper.
