Description

New Product!

Glossy fruit with high-quality flavor. Thornless canes have a vigorous, upright growth habit that makes berries easy to pick. Firm fruit holds up well compared to other blackberries; best for eating fresh, using in recipes, and offering at farmers' markets. Taste is delightfully sweet and sub-acid. A productive, thornless primocane blackberry variety! Introduced in 2015 from the University of Arkansas fruit-breeding program. First-year canes begin ripening in mid-July, while second-year canes bear heaviest crops in June. Continues to fruit until frost. Everbearing primocane. Early season. Self-pollinating. Plant patent applied for (PPAF). APF-190T cultivar

I have had the Prime Jan blackberries in my garden for years. I purchased them from Stark and they have done well. I want to add another variety and wanted to try a thornless new variety. I am looking forward to seeing how this new product does in the garden in the spring.
