Description

The Chester Blackberry is a thornless, self-pollinating fruit that grows in zones 5-9. Grown naturally, it produces large, sweet berries that are perfect for jams and pies.

Chester Blackberry Productive Canes

The Chester blackberry is a productive variety that produces abundant fruit on two-year-old canes, also known as floricanes. Each floricane can produce up to 30 berries, or 10 pounds of fruit per plant.

Chester blackberry plant with productive canes

Productive Chester blackberry canes are typically 6-8 feet long and have a diameter of 1/2 inch or more. They are sturdy and upright, and can support the weight of the fruit without bending. The canes are also thornless, making them easy to harvest.

To identify productive Chester blackberry canes, look for canes that are two years old. They will be brown and woody, with a bark that is peeling or flaking. The canes will also have short, stubby spurs on them. These spurs are where the berries will grow.

To encourage productive Chester blackberry canes, it is important to prune the plant regularly. Prune away the old, one-year-old canes after they have fruited. This will make room for new canes to grow. You should also prune away any weak or diseased canes.

Fertilize your Chester blackberry plants in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. This will help the plants to produce healthy and productive canes.

With proper care, your Chester blackberry plants will produce abundant fruit on productive canes for many years to come.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
