These ultra-sweet blackberries get their “Triple Crown” name for their most admired attributes; productivity, vigor, and flavor. This thornless shrub has garnered rave reviews for its unique, tasty blend of sweetness and tartness and disease resistant growth! Blackberries are a delicious addition to any diet, packed with essential nutrients and antioxidants! Now you can pick them right in your backyard to add to your smoothies in the morning or jam making with the family. Rosey pink flowers give way to juicy plump blackberries, so plump you made need a trellis to help hold them up!
Blackberries are native around the world in more temperate areas. Canes that sprout are biennial, meaning that they produce fruit two years in a row before needing to be pruned off. Berry varieties labeled as “everbearing” signify that the plant will produce fruit on biennial canes and new, smaller canes. To distinguish blackberries from raspberries, a very tell-tale sign can be seen from the fruit. Blackberries are solid fruit with no holes when picked off the bushes; raspberries are hollow once picked. Blackberry cultivars can be grouped into one of three categories based on growing habits - erect, semi-erect, or trailing.
Triple Crown offers more than just delicious berries; the flowers are also very decorative! Similar in appearance to roses, the white flowers bloom in spring just before transforming into the glossy berries that you’ll crave. A mid-summer producer, Triple Crown produces juicy berries that are great for eating right off the thornless bush in the summertime.

How to Grow
Triple Crown enjoys the benefits of full sun and can thrive in part shade as well. Blackberries enjoy being planted in soil that is acidic, rich in organic matter, moist, and well-draining. Be sure not to plant blackberries in wet, soggy soil; these berries do not enjoy having wet feet. If the landscape has clay soil, planting raspberries in raised beds would be a great option to enjoy growing your fruit. After fruiting, prune all canes that produced fruit. Thoroughly prune late winter to early spring to remove any damage occurring during dormancy. Blackberries are self-fertile, so you do not need to plant another blackberry bush.
