Loch Ness Thornless Blackberry

Glossy black berries are big on size and big on flavor! The 4-6 ft. semi-erect canes bear large yields of delicious berries in mid to late June. The berries have a rich, sweet-tart flavor, resemble a wild blackberry and are ideal for fresh eating, preserves and juices. Thornless canes are easy to manage and resistant to blackberry rosette disease (double blossom), that can be a problem in the South. For best results, plant in full sun to partial shade in well-drained, rich, sandy loam soil. Zones 5-9.
