Product information "Large-fruited Blackthorn 'Nittel'"

The large-sized blackthorn Nittel was also selected by Gartenbau Ahrweiler from natural resources near Trier, Germany. In contrast to the other Ahrweiler selection Godenhaus, Nittel is compact and very densely branched and is not higher than 250 cm, making it perfect for a smaller garden. The fruits are significantly larger than the wild form (17 mm on average) and they should be harvested after the first frosts. Then the greatest acidity and bitterness are broken down and the fine blackthorn aroma emerges (reminiscent of bitter almonds). Tests have shown that the variety Nittel is also very well suited for making schnapps and it preserves its aroma there as well.
Short description of the large-fruited blackthorn Nittel
Flowers: Dense, white flowers, from the 2nd year. The yellow stamens are also always attractive, which make the white of the petals shine even more
Harvest: Nittel is more of a late maturing variety, so it should be harvested after the first frosts in order to make the fruits even milder
Fruits: Large-fruited, about twice the size of the wild blackthorn, average diameter: 17 mm
Growth: Compact, bushy, well-branched habit, 2-2.5 m; in contrast to the wild blackthorn shrubs, the branches of this cultivar only have a few thorns. The rather small leaves are attractive
