How many friends have I made since I got a blackberry?!


Even this type can get away from you so keep it in a pot and keep the canes off the ground otherwise they can strike. I have mine sitting in the middle of 2 she-oaks and a gum tree and have the canes ties up all along the trees. It works really well!


The fruit aren't as sweet as the commercial ones... yet. I am hoping as the plant matures it will get sweeter.


He also doesn't seem to know the difference between the seasons - new growth and new berries in winter! :O)

I bought this because it was thornless and non-invasive. The first year saw the 1 foot plant grew to 1.2 meters in heights. It gave a couple of cluster of blackberries. The fruit wasn't as sweet as I hoped it to be (could be because I picked it too early-just want to beat the birds to it first). 

I planted it in a 55L plastic pot with lots of manure and mulching. I have to stake the vines as they tend to sent their arms outward instead of upward. True to their name, there was no thorn. 

They didn't seem to be affected by Melbourne winter or hot summer. Hopefully I get a better crop this year now that the plant is more established.

Update (after winter): Lots of new buds from the leaf axils. I gave it a good watering of Potash and sheep manure.

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1764 days 10hrs

Comments: - It seems to be growing fine as long as I make sure to not let it get waterlogged, Watch mould from things around it. I had it going up through a bamboo trellis that ended up growing some sort of black powdery mould, My blackberry then started going black where it was touching the mouldy bamboo. I have now moved it to a proper frame cut it back and it is now fine, Actually it's going crazy. No flowers yet and I don't know what it'll do up here in Cairns but I'll give it a go.
