Buy blackberry 'Apache' blackberry or Rubus fruticosus agg. 'Apache': Really big fruit and a thornless mid-season cropper.

This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Apache is an excellent variety for the home gardener. It produces really big fruit that have a very sweet flavour, on erect, thornless canes. Bred at the University of Arkansas, each fruit will weigh around 7-10g each. They are produced mid-season and will keep well after being picked.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure. Allow 2m between each plant and 2m between rows. Each spring, mulch well with well-rotted manure. Plants flower on one-year-old wood, so the new canes need to be separated from fruiting ones. After cropping, cut the fruiting canes down to the ground and tie in the new ones that have grown that year.

Thornless and vigorous.


Trained against a tall south facing wall this excellent blackberry has exceeded expectations, with vigorous canes and sprays of large tasty fruit in its first full season here. This years canes are already very tall and full of promise for another good crop next year.
