Arapaho Thornless Blackberry is one of the earliest ripening variety of the deciduous shrub that produces more fruit due to its short ripening period and has sturdy erect canes that do not need staking.  The pink-white rose-like flowers give way to clusters of large blackberries in summer and fruits for four weeks.  Fruits best in full sun and rich, moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Arapaho’s low chill requirement (45 F) makes it a good choice for the south.  Excellent disease and pest resistance, but intolerant of wet soils.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.
