Huge, Sweet Blackberries Without Pesky Thorns!

Nothing compares to the sweet taste of freshly picked blackberries, but many people avoid growing them because of the sharp thorns that make picking a hassle. No need to worry about that anymore with the Apache Blackberry!

This large, sweet berry is packed with flavor and grows on a completely thornless bush. Imagine going out to your garden on a hot summer day and picking a bushel of blackberries for you and your family to enjoy!

Plus, growing these blackberries is easy. They're adaptable to most soil types, as well as self-fertile, so you can plant just one or several…no need to plant a different variety for pollinating.

What's more is that they can stand without support – many blackberry bushes require a trellis or wire for support, but the Apache stands up tall without any help.

The Apache is also resistant to diseases and pests that plague other blackberries, so you won’t have any extra work standing between you and these delicious berries.

And you’ll have plenty to eat because the Apache is one of the biggest producers of blackberries. Producing those huge harvests within 1-2 years, you’ll be able to enjoy Apache Blackberries in no time. Order yours today!

NOTE: This product is specific to California. Find Apache Blackberries available in other states.

Pollination Info

Apache Blackberry Pollination

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

Planting & Care

1. Planting: You can plant your Apache Blackberry in your garden or in a pot. Either way, you'll need to make sure it gets full sun and the soil is well drained. It is a good idea to amend your soil with organic matter or compost. Birds love blackberries too, so make sure you use a garden net to get the most out of your harvest. Add a thick layer of mulch to retain moisture and prevent weeds.

2. Watering: Apache blackberries are drought tolerant, but need an inch of water once a week. Don't overwater the bush. The roots are very shallow and can easily drown. Drip irrigation is best.

3. Fertilizing: Once you see leaves on your plant, you can add some acidic fertilizer. Once your plant is fully mature, you can fertilize it once a year in June and again in the fall if it didn't harvest well.

4. Pruning: After the harvest, prune away the canes that produced fruit. This will ensure that the next harvest is healthy.

5. Pollinating: This is a self-fertile plant and no pollinator is required.

6. Harvesting: Your blackberries are ready to pick and eat when they fall right into your hand. When they easily fall off without plucking, then they're perfectly ripe. The longer the stay on the branch, the sweeter they become. Blackberries store exceptionally well in the fridge and freezer.
