Navaho Thornless Blackberry

Harvest with Ease Thanks to Thornless, Semi-Erect Canes!

The big, deep purple berries of Navaho are borne on sturdy, semi-erect, thornless canes that make harvesting the delicious bite-size treats a breeze! The first of its kind, this vigorous plant produces a berry that is among the best-tasting blackberries on the market today. They are medium size and firm with less tart flavor than other thornless berries. Ideal for jams and jellies, juice and wine, and of course, fresh eating. Upright, self-supporting canes are a snap to maintain and exhibit good cold hardiness. Zones 5-9.
