Blackberry Plants

Organic Blackberry Plants

Blackberries come ripe in the high summer, a fruit of the sun and warm summer months.   I have great, abundant memories of blackberry picking in the heat of summer.  The juicy berries and sweetness transport me back to my younger days.  Of course, we only sell thornless cultivars…I gave enough blood to thorny blackberries in my youth!  Thornless blackberry picking is really close to heaven on earth, if you ask me.
Blackberries are very sturdy plants, and they  are very amenable to most soil conditions, except the very wet and poorly drained.

Most blackberries are hardy down to minus 15 degrees Fahrenheit before they suffer cane die back.   If covered with white over winter poly during the coldest parts of winter, they can sustain temps as low as minus 23F with no loss of cane production.  I have tested that here at our farm in southern Indiana.  The Prime Ark Freedom and Traveler are a bit less cold tolerant than the others, and I have witnessed cane die back on them when temps got below minus 10F.  But these cultivars in zone 5 are best grown with season extension contraptions, relying on the primocane fruiting to produce the quality fruit.  Blackberry crowns (the part that generates the canes each year) have never died from cold here on our USDA zone 5b farm.
