Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Rubus x 'Apache'
  • Height: 5 - 8 feet, upright
  • Spacing: 3 - 4 feet
  • Depth: Same depth as they were in the nursery. Plant so the roots are below soil level.
  • Spread: 4 - 8 feet
  • Light Required: Full Sun
  • Pollinator: Self-pollinating.
  • Yield: Heavy yields.
  • Color: White blossoms.
  • Foliage: Compound, mid green, pubescent foliage.
  • Blooms: Early Summer for several weeks.
  • Fruit: Large glossy black fruit in great abundance.
  • Zone: 5 - 9
  • Form: Erect thornless canes.
  • Soil Requirements: Tolerant of a wide range of soils, will do best in well-drained, humus enriched, slightly acidic soil.
  • Growth Rate: Fast growth rate once established, which takes approximately 3 - 5 weeks.
  • Pruning: Trim canes to 42 inches, remove unwanted ones in early Spring.
  • Comments: A new variety introduced in 1999. It produces higher yielding and larger fruit than other Arkansas thornless, erect varieties. It is also a more vigorous and healthy variety than others currently available, so has much to recommend it. All Arkansas upright berries should be tipped at 42 inches to encourage to fruit lateral and avoid the need for support.
