Plant Heaven Can Wait Blackberry™ canes in early spring to get a bumper 4- to 6-quart yield of luscious berries from mid-June onward. These firm, lustrous blackberries are loaded with vitamins, fiber and antioxidants. The aromatic, intensely sweet flavor makes it hard to save any berries for baking, but a 'Heaven Can Wait' pie is ample reward.

Suitable for hardiness zones 5 to 8, these self-pollinating blackberry plants need full sun and prefer well drained, slightly acidic, loamy soil. Add our Raspberry and Blackberry Food to keep your soil in tip-top condition. The plants grow to a height of 4 feet, with a spread of 3 to 5 feet, and need to be placed 4 to 6 feet apart in rows that are 8 to 10 feet away from each other. The plants have a tall, erect growth habit, and second year floricanes produce a bountiful harvest.

These berry canes have no thorns, making the fruit easy to harvest. Store fresh, un-rinsed berries in a sealed container lined with paper towels in a dry, cool place for up to three days. Eat them fresh, add them to desserts or turn them into delicious blackberry jam. Introduce Heaven Can Wait Blackberry canes to your garden and enjoy the feast!

looking forward to a handful of berries this year
Reviewed By: P Holmes (Pittsburgh, PA)
I bought the WoW fruits now, potted plant which was on sale for less than the 1yr old. I am very happy and pleased with what I got. It is in a 4 inch pot but there were 4 very healthy growths/branches.
