Cold-Hardy, Organic Home-Grown Blackberries
Why USDA Organic Apache Blackberry Plants?
Delivering fast growth that’s cold hardy and organic, the Apache Blackberry Bush is a low-maintenance pick that produces fresh, flavorful fruit without all the work.
Imagine large, juicy, organically-grown berries, indoors or out. With the Apache, it’s effortless, especially since the Apache begins bearing fruit within the first two years of growth. Plus, the Apache withstands temperatures down to 0 degrees, so you can count on harvests despite cold weather. And since these sweet, succulent berries ripen early in the season, you’ll get a head start on your blackberry harvesting.

Apache Blackberry - USDA Organic Pollination
Apache Blackberry - USDA Organics are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Apache Blackberry - USDA Organic will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil are all the Apache needs to thrive, whether you plant outdoors or indoors.
To plant outside, dig a hole large enough to accommodate the Apache’s root ball, place your plant in the hole, backfill with soil and tamp down to avoid air pockets. Finally, mulch the surrounding soil and water to settle the roots.
For indoor planting, select a pot that’s about twice the width of your plant’s shipped container, use organic soil mix and place the plant in the pot. Also, ensure that your pot has drainage holes. After your Apache is planted, place it in front of a sunny window.
2. Watering: Apache Blackberries are drought tolerant but need an inch of water once a week. Generally, this means soaking the surrounding soil with your hose about once per week for 30 seconds.
But if you’re not sure when to water, simply check the top 2 inches of soil for dryness for both in-ground and container-planted Blackberries. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water. Container-planted Apaches should be watered until the water flows from the pot’s drainage holes.
3. Fertilizing: Once you see leaves on your plant, you can add some acidic organic fertilizer. When it’s fully mature, use your organic fertilizer once a year in June and again in the fall if the harvest was smaller than expected.
4. Pruning: After you’ve harvested your blackberries, prune away the canes that produced fruit. This will encourage new growth and more fruit production during your next harvest.
