No gloves necessary! All of the blackberry varieties in this collection are without thorns, making the fruit easier (and painless) to pick. All thornless varieties are also bred to be disease-resistant, a helpful bonus. Keeping the soil pH between 5.5 and 7.0 will keep the berries sweet rather than grassy or bitter-tart.Proper pollinators are conveniently included so you’ll get an abundance of blackberry flowers and fruit.

I have a patch of thorned blackberries, which require leather gloves to pick. The berries are very large, however they do not have much flavor. I am removing the thorned berries and replacing them with these thornless ones.

We love our blackberries, and I love to make a homemade Ice cream or frozen yogurt topping with these. Most of all my husband does the picking and he prefers the canes without the thorns.

I have the thornless blackberry plant collection.Do they all need to stay together?
Katrina S on Jul 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I used mine to replace hedges that I had taken out.. They are self-pollinating, but I planted them along the half block of my side yard. Warning, be patient. I thought they. We're not doing anything and kept buying more (some were to replace the ones that suffered death by weed-whacked form the grass guy). I now have a beautiful thick hedge of blackberry bushe (thank goodness they are thornless!!) and am getting a bumper crop. I m trying to train them away from the street. They ar growing beautifully. I have been putting them in vacuum-seal bags in the freezer to use in my Bed & Breakfast this winter. And some of these berries are HUGE!!
Myra M on Apr 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have no clue about your zone. I am 6A and my blackberries - although it took a couple years - have thrived. I am a plant and forget gardener. I have a bed & breakfast and got the blackberries to create a fence where a hedge used to be - it worked and I get wonderful huge berries to serve at my breakfasts. The red raspberries - another hedge replacement area also thrived. the blueberries have been disappointing. Probably should have tested the soil first.
is there a seed less blackberry?
charles t on Jan 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Unfortunately, there is no true "seedless" blackberry. The 'Arapaho' variety is thornless plant is known as having smaller-than-usual seeds.

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

Great product.
All the plants I ordered are doing great. I will be harvesting my first crop this year. They are about 7 feet tall and have tons of blooms.

Blackberry collection
Plants arrived healthy, and were placed in raised beds. Have grown very well, and this year will be our first berry crop, now loaded with white berries.

Blackberries Plant collection
Plant last spring---have many blossoms this year...spreading everywhere! Very healthy...Had to replace other blackberries that had disease. Vigorous is the best word to describe what the plants are!

Thornless blackberry review
The berries are all living and healthy. There were only a few berries the first year and I am hoping for a big enough crop this year so I can make jelly. The plants bloomed well this spring, so I am hoping for good results.

Too many died
Two out of five plants died first year, next year two more died. The last one is doing strong but it is all alone out of 5 original plants....

Great berries
My plants are on their second growing season and are doing super. Set a heavy crop of berries and still blooming. Prolific new cane growth as well. Looking forward to many years of eating large sweet blackberries!

I planted my blackberries according to recommendations and after 1 year they are loaded with blooms.

Two out of three varieties survived the first year.
All three Ouachita plans were nice sized and took off really well the first year and are rapidly producing new canes. None of the small Natchez plants survived the first fall. Two out of 3 Arapaho made it through the winter and although considerably smaller are covered with blooms.
