can they be planted in shade?
Sharon K on Mar 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a small orchard & from my experience all fruit needs @ least 1/2 a day of sun minimum. The more sun the better. Direct sun preferred, radiant sun off the side of a house etc... Ok too. Hope this helped.
Are they seedless?
Judy H on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. There are, as far as I can tell, no truly seedless blackberries. The Arapahoe blackberry comes the closest, but it has seeds, although they are fairly small.
