Natchez Blackberry

Description
High Yields Early in Season
Thornless plants produce high yields of glossy, large, elongated berries in early summer. Sweet berries are perfect for snacking or in jams, jellies and juice. Semi-erect plants exhibit strong disease resistance—making them an excellent choice for home gardeners. Grows 4-5 ft. tall. Blackberry plants, like Natchez Blackberry, produce fruit on floricanes or second-year shoots. When the cane is flowering and bearing fruit, the plant is also producing new first-year shoots or primocanes. At the end of each year, prune out the floricanes, or the branches that flowered and fruited earlier in the year. Self-pollinating. U.S. Patent 20891 No. 1, 1-yr. plants. Zones 5-9.

  • PruningAt the end of each year, prune out the floricanes, which were the branches that flowered and fruited that season. The next year, the previous season's primocanes will be floricanes, flowering and fruiting-and the cycle continues. As a reminder to you as to which canes flowered and fruited, tie a string or ribbon around them to know which canes to remove at the end of that season. Rule of thumb: If the cane/limb hasn't flowered, DO NOT cut if off. Summer tipping (trimming off the tips of the cane
