blackberries Melbourne

    2 responses

Hi
Has anyone in inner Melbourne been able to harvest ripe thornless blackberries? I don't mean pick fruits from blackberry farms as their plants seem to all have thorns. We grow chester thornless. However, most of the fruit invariably get cooked by the jan/Feb heat before they ripen. We are looking for a sweet, thornless December ripening variety to replace Chester. Thornless youngberry sounds interesting. I'm wondering if any in Melbourne has grown these or another sweet thornless blackberry. Thanks

Do you get enough water in the heat.Maybe put some white frostcloth over to keep out searing heat.

Thanks for your reply Denise. We have had shade cloth over it one year and that made no difference. But we were only watering twice a week (as we do other fruit trees and they were fine). Many Chester blackberries are sold in nurseries in Melbourne - I wonder if anyone actually gets to harvest them ripe.
