This Rubus species is similar to the Rubus fruticosus, but is distinguished by having all leaves divided into 3 leaflets (5-7 in R. fruticosus) and by having only a few individual drupelets in the fruit. The drupelets are covered with a pale 'bloom'.

The name R. fruticosus refers not to a single species, but is used in the aggregate sense, comprising some 2,000 described European species. Many of the species arose as a result of hybridization and apomixis. All species belonging to R. fruticosus L. agg. are exclusively European, except for those that may have spread to other parts of the world.

Rubus hybrid

Brazos Blackberry, Black Raspberry
Family: Rosaceae
Origin: Eastern North America
Large shrub 5-10 ftVine or creeperFull sunModerate waterDeciduousEdibleThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Blackberries will grow in most any soil, but prefer a well-drained, slightly acidic soil. They need regular water, especially when they are fruiting. Blackberries go dormant in the winter but come back year after year. There are many types of blackberries. For a more productive plant and a bigger berry, you should plant the Brazos Blackberry. While the Brazos variety is erect, it does well with some sort of trellising. It is self-fertile so no pollinator is needed. Plants will grow 4-6 feet tall and should be planted 3-4 feet apart in rows spaced 6-8 feet. It is best to plant them in an out-of-the-way spot where they can grow undisturbed for many years. Your plants will begin producing fruit, in late spring, in their second year. While the plant itself is perennial, the canes themselves are biennial. Fruit is produced on second year growth. New canes grow, berry-less, the first year and produce fruit in the second year. After you have harvested the last of the fruit in early summer you need to prune back, to the ground, all the canes that bore fruit that year. Do not prune the canes after September, as the buds are formed over the winter. Tip-prune the new canes when they are about 3-4 feet tall to encourage branching. Work the new side growth down the length of your trellis system.

Everbearing large, dark red raspberry. Mild flavor with superior quality for fresh eating, freezing, jams, and jellies. Raspberries perform best in full sun with plenty of water and a good fertilizing when blooms begin. They are generally thorny, although some cultivars are thornless. A slow warming spring, such as in the Pacific Northwest, is required for optimal flower and fruit production. Staking is also usually necessary. White flowers are borne from late April to June followed by the much anticipated red or sometimes yellow fruit which ripens in mid summer to fall. Fruit is produced on one year old wood. For best results, cut down all fruited canes to ground level at the end of the season. Cold hardy zones 4-9.

Unlike common raspberries from up North that can not tolerate tropical heat, Rubus niveus grows very well in hot humid climates. It grows very fast into a scrambling shrub with flexible stems and tends to bloom and fruit throughout the year. The fruit is red when unripe and purple black when ripe, very juicy and sweet. The clusters contain as many as couple dozen fruit. It is also a very ornamental plant because it has almost white canes and the leaves are green above and whitish underneath. The plant is cold hardy to upper 20s F; young plants are more cold sensitive. Great to grow in large containers and will produce large amounts of fruit. Good drainage is essential for good growth.

Rubus sanctus is a perennial shrub that grows as a large thicket near water sources, in oases, on wadi banks, and in moist fields. The plant has no central stem; instead it produces long thin branches which can reach 5-6 feet in length. Branches have spiked thorns that bend downward. The flowers vary from pale to dark pink, followed by blackberries.

An instance of it can be found at the Chapel of the Burning Bush on Mount Sinai, where it is revered as the original burning bush of the Bible. This longevity and location lead to its Latin name. Derivation of the botanical name: Rubus - latin name for Blackberry, Raspberry; Sanctus - sacred.

The nature of the burning bush is a source of debate among botanists and Biblical scholars. Some believe that the burning bush was not a bush, but a figurative representation of a supernatural phenomenon. Others contend that God spoke through a natural bush.

Rubus sanctus is a symbol of God revealing himself to man. Reveal means to make known something that was secret or hidden and to open up to view. In the entire Old Testament nowhere does God reveal more about himself to one man than in the passage of the burning bush. In fact, this passage is sometimes called the Mosaic revelation of God about himself.

The St. Catherines Monastery spiritual heart is the Chapel of the Burning Bush, an unassuming structure of tremendous religious significance. According the oldest monastic tradition, this chapel sits atop the roots of the same Biblical bush "that burned with fire, and was not consumed" (Exodus 3:2) when God spoke to Moses for the first time. A few feet away from the Chapel is the reputed bush itself, a rare species called Rubus Sanctus. This species is endemic to Sinai and extremely long-lived, a fact that lends scientific credence to the site. The sprawling bush is said to have been transplanted in the tenth century, when the chapel was given a roof. Today, it is very large in size, and many monks and scholars agree that the bush's presence is the very reason St. Catherine's Monastery developed in the first place.
