Thornless Blackberry Arapaho

Arapaho Blackberry Plants are a cold hardy, thornless blackberry cultivar.  These disease resistant blackberry bushes do not need a trellis and have an excellent sweet flavor. This great thornless blackberry is a new release from the University of Arkansas.

Arapaho Blackberry Plants produce blackberry fruits that have an excellent sweet flavor, good size, firm fruit and heavy production.

Arapaho Blackberry ripens two weeks earlier than Navaho and also produces sucker plants which allow this plant to quickly establish a solid fruiting hedge row of plants. We believe the Arapaho Blackberry is the earliest producing Thornless Blackberry available. Zones: 4-9

Ripens Early season (beginning of June) - Excellent Quality - Cold Hardy - High Yielding
Begins bearing fruit in 2 years
Estimated Fruit Yield: 2 to 4 quarts per vine. 
2 yr #1 plants - Zones: 4-9

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.

Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.

This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
