THORNLESS & EASY TO MAINTAIN, GROW JUICY BERRIES IN YOUR BACKYARD!

Get ready for an easy to grow delicious delicacy that you can pick right off the plant and enjoy fresh! Desirable characteristics of Ouachita Blackberry Bush include consistently high yields and good post-harvest keeping excellent quality.

Anyone who has picked wild blackberries in the woods may be hesitant to grow them at home. Not with thornless blackberry plants…. you have nothing to worry about!

The Ouachita thornless blackberry vine features an upright habitat with double blossoms and semi erect canes that bears the fruit of medium size. Fruit is firm and sweet. The full crop fruiting season will begin to ripen in June and the berries appear in early spring. This blackberry cultivar is disease resistant and heat tolerant making it an ideal choice for warmer climates in the south.

The fruit storage and handling potential make this berry plant a great choice for home gardeners. Bred by the University of Arkansas, this blackberry variety is one of our favorites for the excellent flavor and handling potential of the Ouachita.

GROWING THORNLESS BLACKBERRY VINES

The Ouachita Blackberry vine is self-pollinating and prefers full sun and loamy, well-drained soil. Its fruit is deliciously large, sweet berries with black skin, and a firm texture. It requires around 400 chill hours.

Harvest these berries in mid-June – this summer fruit producer can keep producing for 5 weeks after that. The fruiting extends through the late summer growing season. Giving you more time to enjoy this delicious fruit!

Plant blackberries across the United States in USDA hardiness zones 6-9. This summer bearing blackberry plants loves the heat! Can also be grown in a raised bed if there is enough room for roots to grow or even patio grown in a container.

How to Trellis Blackberries

Grown great as Ouachita Blackberry trellis system with plenty feet of row. Saves space, improves efficiency when picking, controls plant size, improves insect/disease problems – just a few of the many benefits of growing blackberries on a trellis. The erect blackberries on the fruiting canes will cling onto the trellis whether it be wire or wood.

These fruit bushes will get up to 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide at full size. You may need to prune long canes to desired size and shape. Plants will produce root suckers at the base of the plant as it spreads. Blackberry plants grow quickly and they require 1-2 inches of water per week when the plant is in its fruiting stages.

Shipped rooted in soil in a pot (not bare root). You will see the difference in fruit quality. Blackberry plants are easy to grow – you will not be disappointed.
