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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Thornless Blackberry

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Thornless Blackberry.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Thornless Blackberry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Thornless Blackberry again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

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!

By: Wayne Pugh
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.

By: Cecil Graves
Not sure how long I've had these but they have yet to produce. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

By: Steve Daniels
I was expecting a bush of some sort but this tree grows like a vine rather then a tree. It didn't produce any berries this year but maybe it will next year. If there is something you have to do to make it grow upright it needs to be on this site.

By: Gregory Geppel
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.

This plant is doing really well, has approx 50 berries ripening. I planted it about 4 mo ago. It's got alot of ne groth too.

By: Matt H.
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.

By: R J Capuano
This at first 'little plant' has thrived in warm weather. It grows and yells out 'I am a happy bush' for all to hear and enjoy. Can't wait for the fruit.

By: Larry Teasley
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.

By: Terri M
These berries are big and beautiful. They also freeze very well so you can have "fresh" berries in the middle of winter!

By: Donna McLoughlin
Loved my experience ordering from Fast Growing Trees. The Blackberry plants I ordered had a strong root system so my plants took off quickly providing a beautiful fruit harvest and a fun way of making memories that we have enjoyed. I will continue to order from them in the future : ) D McLoughlin

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.

By: ss
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".

By: Jessica
Very satisfied. No berries yet but my dog dug up one of my plants like 4 times and it still lived and got bigger!

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.

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.

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.
