Abstract

•Blackberry fertilization with NPK, manure, natural zeolite and their mixtures changed the most cane and berry physical traits and leaf nutrient status.•Impact of fertilizer treatments on berry soluble solids content, acidity and juice pH were not significant.•All fertilizer treatments induced normal levels of leaf N, Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, Cu and Zn and deficiency of P, K and B.•NPK and NPK+zeolite showed the best balanced nutritional values for macronutrients, and NPK, manure, NPK+manure+zeolite and NPK+manure for micronutrients.•Year (season) provoked stronger differences than fertilizer treatments.
