Description

Another Luther Burbank winner! Snow-white berries are translucent, milky-white in color but have all the flavor of a “normal” blackberry. The drupelets look like tiny pearls and are simply beautiful little fruits. Berries stay whiter than other similar varieties as berries ripen, and with much better flavor. A vigorous, trailing-type grower with good disease-resistance. Ripens in late July. Originated in 1916 by Luther Burbank as an improved form of his original white blackberry, ‘Iceberg’. Self-pollinating.

Luther Burbank Variety! Luther Burbank (1849-1926), was an American plant breeder with over 50 years experience developing renowned plant varieties — many of which are still used today.

I live in Zone 10a but I???ve always wanted to grow this plant; is there anything I could do to grow it here?
Sebastian S on Feb 21, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. The issue will be the amount of chill hours it requires to bear fruit. Most blackberries need relatively few winter chilling hours; they will fruit well where temperatures are below 45??F for 300 or more hours per year. You can attempt to grow these but we can not guarantee them to fruit if you do not meet chill hour requirements.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
