Love blackberries but hate getting scratched by thorns?

You no longer have to be extra careful when picking berries, or warn your children about being pricked. Thorns can even be a nuisance to your pets!

More importantly - these berries don't need to be sprayed with insecticides because they are seldom bothered by pests. That means you can grow your blackberries the healthy way... no spraying!

Highly adaptable bushes grow in a variety of conditions. Just plant, then pick! You get a lifetime supply of free, delicious blackberries. Plus, unlike store bought berries shipped from South America, you know that yours are completely safe- when grown organically.

These plants produce heavy amounts of sweet, delicious berries. They grow together in large clusters and are great for eating off the bush, or for making jams and jellies.

Blackberries contain tons of healthy anti-oxidants, which are rich in health benefits.

It's Easy to Plant your Thornless Blackberry
Plant your Thornless Blackberry Bush in an area that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Thornless Blackberries prefer full sun but can tolerate shade. Make sure that your Thornless Blackberry Bushes aren't in a low area that could collect standing water. Plant your Thornless Black Berry Bushes about 3 feet apart for a hedge.

Thornless Blackberry Bushes prefer slightly acidic soil but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Keep your soil moist, not over saturated. Thornless Blackberries need at least one inch of water per week.

Early every Spring fertilize your Thornless Blackberries with a well balanced fertilizer like formula 10-10-10. White flowers will emerge on your Blackberry Bush every Spring. Soon after you'll notice your blackberries growing. They're not ripe until mid summer when their skin turns from red to a dark purple to black color.

Your Blackberries are ready to be harvested when they easily pull away from their stem. This is when they're ripe and sweet.

My blackberry plant is growing/spreading fast, however, it did not produce any fruit this year (I planted in the spring)...hopefully next year. I only planted one blackberry bush. Do you need more than one in order for it to produce fruit?? On the website's description it does say ""frequently planted in groups of 3""

These berries are big and beautiful. They also freeze very well so you can have ""fresh"" berries in the middle of winter
December 31, 2012
The bush is in its second year of full growth. We froze close to a gallon of berries from this single bush. I made some blackberry jam and it has been a great hit with the family.
December 31, 2012
Not sure how long I've had these but they have yet to produce. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
December 31, 2012
This Blackberry vine did not do well the first spring, but it managed to stay alive. it is in it's second spring now and has spread and there is a second plant. Right now it has tons of flowers, so should produce well

We love our blackberry vines. We make blackberry jam and share with neighbors. One of our neighbors is going to teach us how to make blackberry wine.
December 31, 2012
this is our second year with fruit and they are BIG, JUICY blackberries, with no thorns, so the kids have an easy time picking - thanks
December 31, 2012
The Blackberry bush was delivered very healthy and once planted (in early spring) established itself very well and is growing quickly. There are blooms with a promise of juicy blackberries we hope to enjoy soon.

The thornless blackberry plants arrived in very good condition. A few weeks after I planted them the initial stalks started to die and new ones started growing. After that it is hard to say how they have been doing due to the drought. If I miss watering them for a day the leaves start wilting and curling up. The new growth never got above 24 inches. We'll see how they do in the spring.

When can you plant blackberry bushes in zone 6?
Brook H on Nov 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I planted my blackberries in late spring and had no problem with them taking hold and growing great. As a matter of fact , I cut them back to the original stalk in late winter so as to manage them better year to year. I train them like grapevines on wires.
are these genetically modified?
honor r on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: All of our trees are non GMO.
Do you need to cut blackberry bushes back at end of the season?
Paulette A on Oct 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they love to be cut back. Also, a small branch that produces berries will not have berries on it again.
do i have to cut these bushes down after they bear? if so , how far?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You don't have to prune these plants, but you can do so to enhance berry production.

You can prune off the tips of new canes to keep the plants between three to four feet tall. You can let them grow taller but it won't enhance berry production and may make it more difficult to trellis and care for the plants.

Anytime the larger central branches of the blackberry plants grow beyond three feet, it's time to prune them. Use very sharp, clean pruning shears and snip off the tips. During the winter time, you can prune back the side branches to about a foot long. Winter is also the time of year to prune off any dead or diseased branches.
are these plants self-pollinating? or would i need to purchase multiples?
maria b on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is a self-pollinating plant. I only purchased one and it did produce berries.
How do these plants overwinter? Do they maintain leaves or are they dormant? Also, when pruning, how far back do you go?
Shana M on May 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello, This will be the second summer for my little blackberry tree. She loses her leaves in the fall and spends some of the winter under the snow fall. I haven't pruned her yet. She has been growing rapidly this spring.
what growing zone is Florida?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Northern Florida is in zone 9. Mid Florida is in zone 10, and South Florida is in zone 11.
Shouldn't this be planted in the fall? When will it produce?
Burrel on Jul 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I live in the western suburbs of Chicago and I'm not an expert but you could probably plant them any time other than winter. I have 2 plants and they are growing like gangbusters this year because of all the rain. The fruit should ripen in about 1 - 2 weeks. I am so glad I went with the thornless. I had purchased a few plants with thorns from a local store but removed them all because the were such a pain.
if i bougnt 3 of these blackberies how far apart do i plant them?
fred b on May 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought one and it is about two and 1/2 feet wide by 7 foot tall. It is beautiful and has about 50 berries on it now waiting to ripen. I put it in a round tall trellis and everyone talks about it.....I love it.....

I would plant them 5 feet apart....

Good luck. Sharon
What does partial sun mean? I live in a very woody area here in Pa. There are spots that get some sun but not a lot. I need to build up back there. The over population of deer have just about taken out my forest and my Community needs to grow trees and bushes. I am hoping that this can be one of them
Katie on Jun 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: As long as you have a partial view of the sky you should be fine, the more sunshine the better. I put mine in full sun in January and get the berries in June now by the handful daily. For a while I thought that the plants were dead, but they came roaring back now l have new vines popping up all over the place.
Are the black berries resistant to Japanese beetles? I presume that the beetles will still eat the berries even though the plants may be resistant.
Russell S on Aug 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Russell, Russell,Russell
Where do I begin? I don't think there are any hard fast rules when it comes to Japanese beetles. It has been an unusually severe season for Japanese beetles in our area (S.C.). They usually invade my crape myrtles and calla lillies, but this year they were eating and doing the tango on all my blueberry bushes, raspberry bushes, blackberries (which are wild),sunflowers,magnolias etc. We use beetle traps (yes I know some people say they don't work and attract more beetles, but we've found if placed strategically we draw them away and were emptying the bags daily uck). They seem to like whatever they like and most berry bushes are included. The leaf damage while unsightly will not harm your plant. I choose not to spray on anything so as to protect my pollinators and traps are non-invasive. You definitely do not want to spray on your fruiting shrubs. If you need further help with your plants please do not hesitate to contact me. The upside is that Japanese Beetles on last 4 weeks on average. Thank you and Happy Gardening
Can I plan these blackberries in WI in November this year after hard freezes?
Paula G on Oct 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend planting this after a hard freeze. You would want to get it in the ground about 6 weeks before your first hard freeze. Zones 3 & 4 have already been cut off for shipping until spring.

Do I have to plant them in the ground or would a large pot work?
Dan M on Sep 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A pot would probably work for a short amount of time, however, long term this plant prefers to be in the ground.

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most Fruiting Plants are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
