They are good producers, and I want to start a new bed with them.

I want a late-bearing thornless blackberry since the farm where we usually u-pick harvests in July. Our own blackberry will ripen in August and we'll enjoy the last sweet taste of summer!

Do they creep if planted in the ground?
TROY N on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This variety sends out lateral branches along the ground. They should be pruned back to 12 inches and they will then run and produce new growth. All varieties of blackberries should be trained to a fence or posts with plenty of air within the leaves. By pruning the laterals to 12 inches you will have a better harvest. Let me explain a bit more. The laterals to be pruned to 12 inches should be the first year. If you have second year vines 4 feet or longer you need to stake these or train to a fence. I use plant Velcro ties to do this. Do not prune huge lengths off your second year vines or you will end up with less harvest. Triple Crown Thornless will stay at ground level, creep and start new rooted shoots if not trained to be upright. Some plants can get as long as 16 feet so you need a lot of space to grow the lateral branches at ground level.
How large are these plants?
Gillian L on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Our Jumbo Cell Pack plants will be shipped at 4-6" tall, while the gallon-size container plants will be approximately 12" tall.
My wife and I are having difficulty with several of these purchased over the last several years not producing fruit. The canes are long, strongly, and a nice color with full, dark green leaves coming out at the ends. But, they produce either shriveled, dry small berries or none at all. What we don't understand is how the canes can be so healthy (they are getting a full dose of Texas summer sun), but not result in any harvest. Any suggestions?
Tim S on Aug 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Vegetative growth has different needs than the fruit. For example, if you're fertilizing with a high-nitrogen fertilizer, it would encourage the growth of canes and leaves but not flowers or fruit. Some blackberry plants don't mind the heat, but the fruit may not do as well in the heat if the plants aren't getting enough precipitation or irrigation. Cutting back on fertilizer, providing a temporary shade structure over the plants while they're blooming/fruiting (with gardening shade cloth), and making sure the plants get enough water should help improve fruit quality and production.
Can the Triple Crown Blackberry variety be container grown?
Stephen S on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Triple Crown Thornless Blackberry can be grown in a container. A container that is 5 gallons are larger. Since blackberry plant's roots spread out instead of down a shallow container can be used.
The plant will need about 10 inches of potting soil or soil less mix.The container will need holes
in the bottom for drainage. The blackberry vine will need some type of support.

The blackberry will need pruning and training. It may outgrow the container so divide the plant the plant during the winter when it is dormant.

The size, quality and quantity of the berries were outstanding compared to other varieties. They took root easily after transplanting.

Triple Crown Thornless Blackberry
It is certainly way too early to write a review of how I like the Blackberries as I received them late last fall and immediately planted them. I would like to comment on the packaging as the plants came well watered and protected by both plastic and cardboard inside the sturdy sealed mailing bag. They appeared to be very healthy growing plants, unlike items I've received from other nurseries. I've recently checked on them and they appear to have survived the winter and are ready for spring. Hoping to use them to make wine when they start producing berries!

Super Great Flavor!
We are in the third growing season, so getting our first real crop from these plants. We purchased two to plant in our patch with other varieties. WOW!! Size, yield and flavor (triple crown) are all phenomenal, but especially the flavor!! Our other varieties are tart, these, if allowed to totally ripen on the vine are sugar sweet! The whole patch will be replaced with these over the next couple of years.

So far so good
So far they are doing great. Easy to grow and take care of. Healthy plants. They are blooming right now in this area and are full of blooms so I expect there will be several berries. There have been a few berries set on but I can't tell anything of the size or flavor until they are ripe. I have no complaints at all right now and if they produce as expected I am sure I will be extremely happy with them.

Taste is GREAT!
I love these berries. I am in Eastern Washington, and they are hardy, easy to grow, beautiful and bushy, and taste fabulous! This was our first harvest year (3rd year in the ground), and we couldn't get enough of them. For East. WA, they ripen in late July with the main harvest in the first 2 weeks of August. Best for picking and eating when the berry is somewhat softer and comes off/falls off easily when you pull on it. If you have to tug to get it off the stem, let it sit a few more days. They are worth the wait! These thornless plants are especially good for parents with small children and for people who want "edible yards."

Good tasting, hardy, easy-care
I put my plants in under less than optimal conditions and this has been a difficult weather year. Nonetheless, they are thriving and have produced a handful of berries with good flavor and texture. I'd recommend these to anyone who wants a nice berry crop with minimal effort.

Plants did not grow very big
One plant did not come up after our mild winter. Three of the other plants are very small. I did have one plant that is growing great!.

Not 100% happy, but this is the first time I have planted blackberries.

Expecting berry harvest this year
Ordered these about 2 years ago and will get first berry harvest this summer.

Purchased 6 plants total but lost two. Not sure why as they were all treated same.

Like that there are no thorns. Makes handling so much easier!

Looking forward to tasting the first crop in couple months.
