The Apache Blackberry Plants is a sweet thornless blackberry and an excellent choice for the home garden. This newly released thornless blackberry variety, Apache produces larger fruit and higher yields than any of the other previously released blackberry cultivars.
Apache Thornless Blackberry ripens 10 days or more later than the Arapaho Blackberry but earlier than Navaho around the end of June, early July.
We have selected America's leading grower for berry plants to furnish our berry loving Greenwood Nursery customers. Apache plants grow in the northern climates for cold hardiness yet produce abundant fruits as far south as planting zone 9.
The Apache Blackberry fruits are conical with glossy black coloring. Reports show Apache Thornless Blackberry's fruit to be larger than Arapaho or Navaho with eating and holding characteristics to be better than Arapaho but not quite as good as Navaho fruit. Canes of Apache Thornless Blackberry are more erect than other thornless varieties and can be grown without a trellis when primo canes are tipped at 42 inches to control primo cane length and encourage lateral shoot growth.
