WOW!!!
Reviewed By: Jeff (Chula Vista, CA)
1st year, two berries. 2nd year, it won't stop!! We've been picking huge berries by the bowl full every couple of days. Just when I thought it was done, it shot up a bunch of new growth and is blooming all over again. The flavor of this berry is the best we've ever had. It produced the best jam ever!! Compliments from all who have tried it.

Wonderful Plants
Reviewed By: Charles (Independence, KY)
I ordered 6 canes in 2008 and planted them in early sping. I was very surprised to get berries that fall! I planted them in a somewhat shady area and they have still done very well and are putting out new shoots to fill the area already. This year the birds are getting them before they turn black so I haven't gotten many. Hopefully they will fill in enough that there are some for me. I think I may need to buy some netting.

amazing!
Reviewed By: Alex Gutowski (Morris Plains, nj)
One year after planting we have more giant berries than we can eat.Our three kids have picked a guart each morning for the entire month of August. We have enjoyed 2 cobblers and 4 pies already this summer and they are still loaded. We are freezing them now for Thanksgiving and Christmas desserts. What fun. Can't wait to see what happens next year.All from just 6 plants.

The best blackberries ever!!
Reviewed By: Terri Odom (Damascus, Arkansas)
I have never grown blackberries until I ordered the thornless Apache and Triple Crown plants. They are exactly as advertised, huge and delicious!! These plants have only been planted 3 years and they are producing large amounts of perfect berries and I don't do anything special for them except a little watering when needed. I would highly recommend these if you are accustomed to good tasting wild berries. These have great flavor and no thornes!!! Be sure to keep them pruned when they are about 3 feet high and then also prune the offshoot branches or they will get out of control real quick!
