Large, Sweet, Blackberries Perfect For Home Growing

The Triple Crown Blackberry is a new and improved blackberry variety that’s quickly rising to the top as the most popular type of blackberry to grow at home. 

Triple Crown Blackberries are thornless and pump out tons of enormous, savory berries that you can pick without the burden of getting pricked by thorns. 

With the Triple Crown Blackberry harvest season lasting for an entire month you will have berries all year. Every time you check on your plant, you’ll find new fresh blackberries ready to be picked late in the summer.

You will have more than enough blackberries to share with your family and friends, and they will be amazed by the fact that your homegrown berries are larger and sweeter than varieties found in local grocery stores.

Mouth watering, savory Triple Crown Blackberries are one the sweetest and juiciest varieties available. They’re perfect for an all-natural, organic snack and for making jams and pies. Their rich flavor will have your recipes tasting better than ever. 

Best of all, you can grow Triple Crown Blackberries with little to no maintenance. This semi erect blackberry variety doesn’t need a trellis to thrive, and can tolerate heat and humidity that other varieties can’t handle.

Triple Crown Blackberries don’t make a fuss. They will thrive if planted in the ground or in a container. If your area gets too cold for this blackberry variety, keep it in a container and bring it indoors during the winter.

When the warm weather returns you’ll have beautiful white flowers in the early summer that turn into endless supply of delicious blackberries around August. 

The Triple Crown Blackberry is selling out fast. Be sure to order yours today, before they are all gone. 





Triple Crown Blackberry Pollination

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

I just got this Triple Crown Blackberry. It was shipped with the huge Chinese Chestnut tree in one box. It was damaged and they sent me another Blackberry. The new one was much bigger and healthy. They provided excellent customer service.

not real happy thus far
I've purchased several berry plants from FGTs and none have produced anything in the first year. This is the second growing season and they are growing well now, but no berries yet on the triple crown, however, the raspberries are coming up and really delicious. I can't explain why the disparity since blackberries grow wild all over Oregon, so I know the climate is ideal for them.

I've followed all the instructions and utilize their root stimulators and fertilizers, water consistently.

Great fast growing plant
I planted 1 year ago. This spring the plant produced some leaves and started to die back... I thought it was gone... a week later, a new shoot (twice as large) showed up and it has a vigorous growth. Some flowers showed up... I am curious to see if I will have some fruits this year. It is still a small plant (but growing) around 1 feet tall.

Look strong and healthy
I bought two triple crown blackberry and two heritage raspberry bushes. They came in looking great! All four bushes even have some berries on them (need to ripen). I am very satisfied with how they were packaged and I can’t wait to get them in my backyard.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Triple Crown Blackberry


Triple Crown Blackberry  Planting Diretions

The triple crown blackberry (Rubus fruticosus 'Triple Crown') is a hardy blackberry that with proper care, will provide you with fruit for many years to come. These semi-erect, thornless canes can either be trellised or left free-standing with annual pruning. Growing to a height and width of 3-5 feet they do not spread and are not considered invasive. The triple crown can tolerate a wide range of climates but prefers moist, well draining soil. If you have a heavy clay based soil, consider a raised bed to ensure better drainage. Triple crowns are grown in USDA growing zones 5-9 and will produce fruit starting in June or July depending on your location. This variety of blackberry is self fertile, however you will get a larger crop with the addition of more plants.

Selecting a location: When scouting out a spot for your blackberry bushes, avoid low sitting areas of your yard that collect a lot of standing water or that may be prone to flooding. Also, keep in mind the amount of sunlight that area gets a day. Blackberries prefer full sun but can tolerate partial shade. For the best berry production make sure that your bushes get at least six hours of sunlight each day. For a hedge, plant your blackberries about three feet apart.

Planting Directions:
1) Once you have the location for your bushes selected dig a hole three times as wide as the root ball and just as deep.
2) Take a pitchfork or shovel and run it along the sides of the hole to loosen the soil and remove any dirt clumps, rocks, or grass from the hole.
3) When it’s clear of debris, place your blackberry bush in the hole and make sure that it’s level with the ground and backfill the hole. Use a mixture of your native soil (60%) and sandy compost (40%) to fill the hole. Tamp down the soil as you fill to remove any air pockets that may have formed.
4) Once you’ve finished this process, give your bush a long drink of water and mulch around the base to conserve soil moisture.

Watering: 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 overwater your plants, it’s important not to over saturate the soil. The amount of water needed will depend on your climate and the time of year.

Fertilizer: 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 it’s leaves will show some signs of discoloration. It’s best to fertilize early in the spring before new growth starts to emerge, then again after your berry harvest. Use a well-balanced, general all-purpose fertilizer like formula 10-10-10.

Pruning: Pruning will help increase your blackberry crop and keep your bushes healthy. After a year of growth in the early spring, take a sterile pair of sharp hand pruners and remove the tips of each woody blackberry cane. If they’re shorter than 24 inches long, only remove the tip back to about an inch. This will cause the bush to branch out wider and produce more berries.

After your berry harvest, it’s time to clean your Blackberry Bushes up. Blackberries will only produce on canes that are two years old, meaning once the cane has produced berries, it won’t produce more. Prune spent canes back to promote the growth of new ones.

Weed Control: The best method of removing weeds and suckers from around your blackberry bushes is to get a firm grasp on them and pull them upwards out of the ground in a twisting motion. Placing a 3 inch thick layer of mulch around your bushes to prevent weeds from growing. Mulch will also help the soil retain moisture.

Pests and Diseases: Some of the most common pests for Blackberry shrubs include spider mites and birds. To rid of bugs like mites or worms, spray your bush with an all-natural organic pesticide. Birds can be trickier to get rid of. Place fake owls or snakes around the bushes to scare them, or cover your bushes with bird netting.

Common diseases for Blackberries include different types of mold and fungi. These can be prevented by removing dead or damaged branches. Doing so will prevent chances for infections and the spread of pathogens. If you see any spotted leaves or branches, remove them. Molds and fungi can be treated with the use of organic fungicides.

Pollination: Most Blackberry varieties are self-pollinating. However, having two or more shrubs will greatly help with pollination and you’ll have a lot more berries to harvest. With multiple shrubs, more pollen is transferred from bloom to bloom by natural pollinators like the wind and bees.

Are these blackberries thornless?
JohnnieMae C on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Second season with this bush and do not see any thorns forming so I am pretty certain it is thornless. Aggressive grower though. I'm in zone 7 and this spring this "bush" has taken off with several runners. I have actually folded/turned the runners back onto the main stem to form a rounded "bush" type shape.
