A blackberry breakthrough! The first and only blackberry of its kind, with pale ivory drupelets and all the blackberry flavor and juiciness you’d want. A exciting new variety that grows more in a long-lived, upright shrub form than a vine, so it needs no trellising. Produces on second-year canes. A reliable producer for a decade or more with proper care and feeding, with fruit that doesn’t leak, and stores and freezes very well. Stunning in a fruit salad and simply delicious out-of-hand. Good disease-resistance, too. Self-pollinating, but yields bigger crops when planted near a different blackberry variety with a similar bloom time. May be covered by USPP #20,234 or other patents. Nettleton Creamy White cultivar.

Is the polar blackberry sweet?
John H on Feb 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are every bit as sweet and juicy as "regular" blackberries. Delicious.
When I search the cultivar Nettletons Creamy White what I'm reading says that they have thorns. This is tagged as thornless. Is it really thornless?
Chels on Feb 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is the 'Polar Berry' cultivar. 'Nettleton's Creamy White' is a different cultivar that has thorns. 'Polar Berry' is thornless, which is one of the characteristics that makes it so attractive.

This blackberry produces fruit on second-year canes. Are canes hardy to zone 5? Will canes survive zone 5 winters?
Lenka on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This variety is called "Polar" for a reason, and it is hardy to Zone 5. It's always good to mulch for the winter as insurance, but this variety should thrive in your area.
