Thornless Blackberries

While it may be argued that the exceptional taste of a homegrown blackberry is worth the hassle of thorns, you can actually enjoy the same delicious taste from thornless blackberry bushes! Around the turn of the 20th century, thornless sports (natural mutations) of regular blackberry canes were discovered in the United States. Since then, several different thornless blackberry varieties have been cultivated for home growing, among them the Apache thornless blackberry (erect), Chester thornless blackberry, and Triple Crown thornless blackberry.

No thorns, no tears! Growing thornless blackberries means you and your family can leave the gloves and long sleeves inside when you pick these summer treats.
