Black rabbits are generally just wild rabbits that have that gene surface(can`t remember the correct name....it`s a senior moment a.k.a. C.R.A.F.T.) they also revert to albino and a nice fawn/ginger.

I have also come across some with white patches but I would think that was to do with a mating between wild and domestic bunnies.

We have wild ginger rabbits in our area at the moment, they certainly look different.
In the past I've caught black rabbits and even a skewbold one. They all taste the same.

Black ones are melanistic.
