  • Soil Requirements: Well-drained, rich, slightly acidic moist soil, 5.5- 6.8 pH.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate growth rate.
  • Pruning: When the new shoots of erect blackberries reach thirty to thirty-six inches in height, cut off the tips. This will force branching lower on the canes and will cause the canes to thicken, making them better able to support a heavy fruit crop. During the winter, prune the laterals to twelve to fourteen inches for convenient harvesting and larger berries. In late winter, remove any remaining dead or weak wood. Leave healthy, vigorous canes spaced at six canes per linear foot.
  • Size: 1/4 inch blossoms.
  • Comments: Blackberry Prime-Ark Freedom is the first thornless, primocane-fruiting blackberry. Exceptional fruit size, good flavor, excellent disease resistance, great heat and humidity tolerance.
