Me and the bears love blackberries

Wanted thornless blackberries! I have wild blackberries with thorns and they are very good but I feel as if I have been in battle after I have harvested them!
Lois W on Apr 4, 2016
This variety was recommended by my state's extension service for its self-supporting canes, lack of thorns, and small seeds which make it more pleasant to eat.
Melissa W on Mar 28, 2016
I got two of these by mistake sixteen years ago and they are still producing. I love that they have no thorns and stay really erect.
Stacy H on Mar 8, 2016
These berries will help us teach our daughters stewardship for the Earth and show them how the fruit they enjoy grows. We chose thornless varieties because we plan on involving young children. We chose the multiple plant pack to increase our chances of success.

Arapaho Erect
I have bought these three different times. The first two orders were great. The last time I received the plant was disappointing. The plants looked very unhealthy. I planted them and two of the plants may not survive. Not very pleased with the six plants I received

Planted with Prime-Ark 45 Primocane & Kiowa
All 3 blackberries produced like crazy and were good tasting blackberries, but one of the smaller ones was excellent. Since I know the Kiowa is the huge one, had to be the Prime-Ark or Arapaho Erect that was so sweet, like I like them. The Kiowa gets huge and is good too, but harder to know exactly when it is ready to pick.

Blackberry bushes
They arrived quite healthy but it is way too early for a complete review as berry season hasn't begun. I'm quite hopeful these will do well.
