I like that they ripen in August so that will extend my black raspberry season.

I chose the Munger black raspberry variety because of the size of the canes. They will be grown in raised beds and the vines will supported by a double-Geneva wire trellis. The overall height of the Munger seems to lend itself well to the maximum height of my trellis system.

Could these Munger black raspberries be planted near wild black raspberries?
Max P on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That's exactly what I did in my plantings. We have an aggressive patch a small delicious wild black raspberries, and I put Munger on the outside edges of it. Two plants took and survived into adulthood and one didn't. My wild black raspberries are aggressive so it was a matter of cutting them back judiciously to give the transplants space.
Are these thornless?
Russell B on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, and mine ran a lot. Grew out of control, needs a trellis

Not impressed
The plants were too small to begin with and it's taking 3 years to get anything from them. Am having better luck transferring wild ones to the black raspberry patch. Will not order these again.

Munger Black Raspberries
After receiving my plants, I over-wintered them in a planter and transplanted them out this spring. They are doing fine, but I cannot expect to see any berries this season. About 3 months after removing my plants from the planter, I discovered 6 new plants growing where the original 6 plants had been.. New plants had sprouted up from small hair-like roots that had been left behind.

Black Raspberries
This is a new company for me and I am impressed with the packaging when they sent the actual plants. This is my third attempt at black raspberry bushes, to no one's fault but my own. So far they already have buds on them and they are going strong.
