Why plant Triple Crown Blackberry?

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.

How to use Triple Crown Blackberry in the landscape?

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 midsummer producer, Triple Crown produces juicy berries that are great for eating right off the thornless bush in the summertime.

Planting Zones

Hardiness Zone: 5-9

How To Plant Triple Crown Blackberry

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. Blackberries are self-fertile, so you do not need to plant another blackberry bush.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

After fruiting, prune all canes that produced fruit. Thoroughly prune late winter to early spring to remove any damage occurring during dormancy.
