A Giant, Early Harvest of Sweet Blackberries
If you’re looking for an easy-to-grow blackberry bush that gives you a huge harvest, look no further than the Natchez Blackberry.
· No diseases or pests – The Natchez is resistant to diseases and pests that plague many blackberry plants.
· Early harvest – One of the earliest harvest times, you can enjoy these blackberries as soon as summer begins.
· Self-fertile – There’s no need to buy two varieties, plant as many Natchez as you like, and you’ll have a healthy harvest in no time.
Adaptable to most soil types, you can easily grow the Natchez in any garden in zone 6-8.
And unlike most other blackberry plants, the Natchez stands tall without support…
And it’s completely thornless. Pick your fresh summer blackberries without any hassle or gloves.
It’s gorgeous too! The large, dark berries standout against the green foliage in summer…
In spring, small white flowers blanket the bush that grows to 3-5 feet tall.
If you like your blackberries tart, pick them early, but if you want a blackberry that’s sweeter than any you’ve ever tasted from the market – let them ripen on the branch a little longer.
Since they produce fruit within 1-2 years, you can have Natchez blackberries in no time at all. Order yours today!
Natchez Blackberry Pollination
Natchez Blackberrys are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Natchez Blackberry will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Natchez Blackberry plants looking healthy!
Just received and transplanted my Natchez Blackberry plants! They all look healthy. I now have my entire back fence planted with Natchez Blackberries! I will keep you updated over the next few months with their progress. I have your Meyer Lemon trees and lime tree planted also. The soil here in South Carolina is very sandy. I brought in some good topsoil and fertilizer for the transplanting. They look healthy so far. Thanks again for all your advice and quick service. Talk to you soon!
Excellent packaging and shipping. My plants are already showing new growth! There are new green vines and leaves and what looks like early flower buds. My Natchez Blackberry plants are coming back to life! Soon there will be some delicious blackberries!
I was dubious when the little twiggy plant arrived with about 2 leaves on it last year. But I followed instructions and planted it in a sunny spot out front. Fast forward to about 2 months ago and HOLY COW! Look at this thing! It's VAST. And it has LOADS of berries on it already. It'll be another few weeks before the berries are ripe but there's going to be a ton of them on this one bush. I'm including the pics below even tho I can't fit the whole thing in frame. I'm going to order another one in a minute so I can have a friggin' blackberry ORCHARD next year!
My brothers recommendation
My brother told me the Natchez variety was the best. I received the plants full of blackberries and have already eaten 7 which were delicious.
Planting & Care
You can plant your Natchez 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.
Watering: Natchez 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.
Fertilization: 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.
Pruning: After the harvest, prune away the canes that produced fruit. This will ensure that the next harvest is healthy.
Pollination: This is a self-fertile plant and no pollinator is required.
When to pick: 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.
