Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Rubus fruticosus 'A 1960' PPAF
  • Height: 4 feet
  • Spacing: Space 4 - 6 feet apart in the row. Leave 8 - 10 feet between rows.
  • Depth: Same as nursery. Plant so the roots are below soil level.
  • Spread: 3 - 5 feet
  • Light Required: Full sun
  • Pollinator: Self-pollinating.
  • Yield: Approximately 4 - 6 quarts- heavy yields, only slightly less than Apache.
  • Foliage: Deep green foliage.
  • Blooms: May-June
  • Fruit: 5 - 6 grams (medium size) black, glossy fruit.
  • Days To Maturity: First season.
  • Zone: 5 - 8
  • Form: Upright, erect, self-supporting canes.
  • Flower Form: White single blooms
  • Soil Requirements: Blackberry plants grow best in a well-drained, fertile, slightly acidic, loam soil with moderate water-holding capacity.
  • Growth Rate: Medium growth rate.
  • Pruning: How you should prune erect and trailing blackberries varies slightly. All cultivars require very little pruning or training during the planting year. Differences in pruning and training between erect and trailing blackberries: Top the primo canes of erect cultivars during the Summer. Don't top trailing cultivars during the growing season. Shorten the laterals of erect cultivars.
  • Comments: Thornless, erect (self-supporting) floricane (produces fruit on 2nd year stems), highest in a lab measure of ORAC (oxygen radical absorbancy capacity), total phenolics, and 2nd highest for total anthocyanins, -- the healthiest blackberry on the market. Extended harvest, firm berries have a lovely appearance & excellent sweet flavor.
