Sweet Delicious Blackberries with No Thorns- No Spraying- No Fuss!

- No thorns!
- High in vitamins and antioxidants
- Pest resistant

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.

Blackberry Plants grow upright to a height of 3-6 ft. - so you don't need a trellis.

Frequently planted in groups of 3.

Thornless Blackberry Pollination

Thornless Blackberry are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Thornless Blackberry will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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
January 1, 2013
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.
January 1, 2013
Not sure how long I've had these but they have yet to produce. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
January 1, 2013
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.
January 1, 2013
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

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.

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
January 1, 2013
Very satisfied. No berries yet but my dog dug up one of my plants like 4 times and it still lived and got bigger!

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.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Thornless Blackberry

Thornless Blackberry Planting Diretions 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.

We moved into Killen, Alabama in early spring and the thornless berries here were in need of work. There are gaps in the line of plants and I need at least two more plants to fill in the space.These plants that you have, look great and seem similar to the unknowns we have inherited here.
I hope your plants will get well settled and by Spring we will have even more berries to enjoy. Thanks
truman f on Aug 31, 2016
Checked out different plants for Blackberries, just bought three different ones recently, so I wouldn't have to travel and fight the thorns, bugs and snakes for the berries. All I have to do is walk out where I'm planning on raising my blackberries when ever I want to pick them. Reading on all three plants, sounds like these were my best choice, for what I wanted in a blackberry.

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 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.
Do you need to cut blackberry bushes back at end of the season?
Paulette A on Oct 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Do not depend on me. I thin/trim in late/late winter early spring. You can tell what has died off and what has survived as you shape the plant. Shaping, new growth/old growth etc you need to check your region.
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.
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.
What time of year do you plant blackberry bushes?
Wilma S on Aug 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: i planted my thornless blackberry plant in new york in the spring , I believe it was april may.It came with three berries on it which to my surprise ripen in about june july. The plant grow many branches the first year. This second year it has already had many berries on them. If you are considering planting them in the fall, depending on where you are weatherwise, I would make sure I had at least a couple of months before frost, so that it could develop a good strong root system. Best wishes Lester NY

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
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.
How can I bring my blackberry bush up to par? Not doing so well.What is the schedule on watering/I have a sprinkler system.
Patricia W on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Keep the soil moist, but not over saturated. Blackberries need about an inch of water of week, and more during times of drought. Check on your soil once a week, if it’s starting to dry out then it’s time to give your bush more water. Due to the shallow rooted nature of these plants, they shouldn’t dry out down to six inches below the surface of the soil. However, be careful not to over water your plants. It’s important not to over saturate the soil.
Blackberry Bushes don’t need regular fertilizing, unless you know that your lawn is lacking in nutrients. Also, fertilizing your bushes can increase growth and fruit production. You’ll know when your Blackberry bush needs fertilizing because its leaves will show some signs of discoloration. It’s best to fertilize early in the spring before new growth starts to emerge, and again after your berry harvest. Use a well-balanced general all-purpose fertilizer like formula 10-10-10.
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.
I bought this 2 years ago. The first summer I got some berries. This past summer I did not get any berries and it grew very tall-about 12 feet high. How should I proceed to get berries?
joann m on Jan 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should fruit this year. When they are young they don't always fruit every year. Fertilize in the spring but otherwise you do not have to do anything special.
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
I was wondering if your blackberries and other plants are GMO free?
Thank you.

BEST ANSWER: I am not sure to be honest. But they produce very nice fruit
What does it mean by 2 year stock?
Rob J on Apr 7, 2016

Jon E on Jan 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they would grow in Georgia and in containers.
To late to plant in Michigan?
David S on Oct 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You will want to get this plant in the ground 6 weeks before your first hard freeze.
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.
