Jumbo Sized Fruit with Jumbo Sized Flavor!
The Blackberry 'Apache PP11865', Rubus ursinus 'Apache', is the highest yielding and largest of the thornless blackberries. Released from the University of Arkansas it produces larger fruit and higher yields than any of the other Arkansas blackberry cultivars.
This blackberry ripens in mid to late June and has a glossy black color with exceptional sweetness; jumbo sized fruit with jumbo sized flavor! Excellent for fresh eating, jams, jellies or pies.
The canes of 'Apache' Thornless Blackberry are more erect than other thornless varieties and can be grown without a trellis; should be tipped at 42 inches to encourage to fruit lateral and avoid the need for support.
Use this as a shrub for screening, or for a great border shrub or cover plant. 'Apache' is tolerant of a wide range of soils, but will do best in a well drained, humus enriched one.
Enjoying blackberries fresh off your own plants is so much better than store bought. If you enjoy blackberries, the Apache is a great choice.
