Sweet & Tasty Blackberries Are Produced During Summer!

The Natchez Blackberry Bush is an excellent cultivar for an easy-to-grow fruit bush that produces bushels of sweet blackberries annually!

We love thornless blackberries for their ease of maintenance and small size perfect for any garden. The Natchez Thornless Blackberry Bush, created by the USDA and the University of Arkansas, is prized for having thorn-free canes, or branches, and less painful pokes for you! This plant exhibits dark green foliage and produces a white flower in early spring.

It is a self fertile blackberry bush, meaning you don’t need another blackberry bush to cross-pollinate and produce fruit. The large berries will ripen and mature over summer for a harvest date in June, which is earlier than many other erect thornless varieties. The elongated blackberries are shiny and will fill the branches. They can be picked right off the plant for enjoyment, or used in creating jams, jellies, or pies! Fresh blackberries have tons of nutritious benefits including being packed with antioxidants, fiber, vitamin C, and essential minerals.


Grow Natchez Blackberry virtually anywhere in the United States! It thrives in the department of agriculture plant hardiness zones 4-9. The Natchez thornless variety loves the hot heat of the South but is very tolerant to colder weather too!

Well-draining soil that is kept consistently moist is best but the plants will adapt to many soil types. Full sun is required to produce sweet berries at their fullest potential. A slightly acidic soil pH is ideal as well.

Once established in the landscape, the Natchez blackberry plant is drought tolerant. A thick layer of mulch around the root zone will help to retain moisture and discourages weeds. Apply a slow release fertilizer around the root system in the early spring growing season to help with growth and fruit production. It will take up to 1 year for the plant to bear fruit and the ideal time to plant is in early spring.

You can even plant blackberry bushes in containers if you have limited room on space in the garden. The Natchez Blackberry plant only grows 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide making it the perfect size for container growing.

How to Prune Thornless Blackberries That You Bought Online

Pruning thornless blackberries is essential to get the most out of your blackberry plant. Every year the semi-erect berry bush will push out new growth or canes called primocanes. After the flowering and fruit production in the second year, the canes are called floricanes and these are what you want to prune back annually. Once a blackberry cane produces the fruit it is useless and won’t produce fruit on the same branch ever again. Regular pruning techniques encourage new growth and tons of delicious blackberries!

Natchez is an extremely pest and disease blackberry variety, as well as high yielding, so it is a great choice for home gardeners.
