Product Description


Extra-large fruit the size of golfballs covers these thornless, ultra-hardy, semi-erect plants in midsummer! Smooth and glossy, the fruits are super-sweet with no sour bite. Hardy to -20 degrees Fahrenheit, these sun-loving plants are certain to delight!

Blackberries are grown much like raspberries. The plants like full sun and good air circulation. They do best in enriched garden soil that is moisture-retentive but well-drained. Plant the top of the rootball level with the soil surface, about 4 to 6 feet apart in the row, or train up a trellis. For best growth, cut back immediately after planting, to prevent the plant from setting fruit the first year. This will give you much stronger growth and better harvests in years to come. Water well during growth, and consider mulching to conserve water until the following spring, when the mulch should be removed to let the plants warm up. In winter, cut back to about 5 canes per crown.
