Hybrid Berry Plants

Hybrid Berry Plants Buyer's Guide

Hybrid berry plants are closely related to the berry plants you are familiar with: blackberries, raspberries, and more. Rest assured, no genetic engineering was involved in creating these plants – just good old fashioned plant breeding! How does it work? Breeders moved pollen between different (but closely related) berry plants and then planted the resulting seeds. These seeds became new berry plants and only the cream of the crop plants were chosen to become new varieties. Think of hybrid berries as “cousins” of the berries you already know and love! Add hybrid berry plants to your garden and enjoy bountiful yields of unique and flavorful fruit.

To ensure your growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things to consider when you buy a hybrid berry plant.

Zone Compatibility

Your climate plays an important role in whether a berry plant will produce fruit or even survive. Before ordering a plant, make sure its recommended hardiness zone range includes your area.

Proper Pollination

All of these berry plants are self-pollinating, so planting a pollinating partner to increase the size of your crops is completely optional. You’ll get fruit with only one plant!
