The Arapaho Blackberry (Rubus ursinus ‘Arapaho’) has very large, dark and juicy berries! This variety was developed by the University of Arkansas 1980s has been one of the most popular varieties ever since!
The bright, shiny black fruit grows in clusters and can be medium to large, spherical to conical in shape. It has seeds smaller than most varieties and the fruit is firm, rich and sweet! Perfect to each fresh, turn into jam or syrup. If you have more than you need at the moment, they will stay fresh in the fridge for up to two weeks!
The Arapaho Blackberry self-pollinates as bees buzz from pink blossom to pink blossom. They enjoy the blooms in the spring so that you can enjoy the fruit in the summer. In fact, these are great plants for pollinators
Planting and Application:The canes grow up to 6 feet tall and are disease-resistant. They are hardy and grow quickly, so you will be able to enjoy a good crop the year after planting. They are cold hardy so you won’t have to worry about the frigid weather. Best of all, they are thornless, making them easier to pick and very kid-friendly.
Despite being thornless, these Blackberry canes can still grow dense enough to deter anyone wanting to walk past them, so plant hedgerows of berry bushes for property definition and create a sanctuary for birds to nest in! The tall mature height will also provide you considerable screening and privacy, while also loading up your cereal in the morning with juicy berries!

#ProPlantTips for Care:Blackberry plants love full sun but will tolerate a little shade if they have to (though you may have fewer flowers and fruit). Find it some rich, slightly acidic soil that is moist but well-drained. Mulch helps retain moisture and control the weeds and water it weekly unless it is hot or dry, then give it an extra drink.
