Blackberry Canes

Blackberries take up quite a large amount of space but the quality and taste of cultivated varieties can be far superior to that of their wild cousins.

It's well worth spending some time looking at the different varieties and going for one that will be productive and providing you with a good crop in years to come.

There's a guide to growing blackberries on the site here: Grow Your Own Blackberries

 

Blackberry Waldo

Exceptional flavour! A highly recommended thornless, mid-season blackberry variety which produces heavy crops of large fruit. The intensely black berries boast an exceptional flavour and are ideal for cooking or jam-making. Whilst not as compact-growing as 'Navaho' it is still more compact than many traditional varieties. Supplied in a 3 litre pot.

Reuben

A breakthrough in blackberry breeding. The most unique aspect of Reuben is that it is a primocane, therefore the plant will fruit on the first years growth, in the same way as autumn fruiting raspberries do. The plant also has an upright growth habit, making it a far cry from the usual wild blackberry. The fruits are large, measuring up to 4.5cm (2") in length. Like all blackberries, it's delicious cooked but also tastes fantastic straight from the bush. It also has the added bonus of producing very attractive, large white flowers during the months of June and July. The fruits are incredibly sweet peaking at a brix of over 11.5%! Supplied in a 2 litre pot.
