Apache Thornless Blackberry Plant

Huge Fruit—Big as a Quarter

  • Extra-large berries
  • Produces heavy yields
  • Thornless canes are self supporting
Picking is quick and easy with Apache Thornless Blackberry. The thornless plants produce some of the largest fruits and highest yields of any of the thornless blackberries. The extra-large, glossy, black berries are sweet, juicy and flavorful, too. They're great for eating fresh, and also delicious when cooked into cobblers, desserts and preserves. The flowers are extra-fertile, so you get more cone-shaped berries that are perfectly formed. The canes stand erect. Fruits ripen in mid to late June. Zones 5-9. PP11865.
