Blackberry - ApacheRubus Canadensis
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-9
The Apache Blackberry is an erect thornless blackberry similar to Arapaho with larger fruit and seed, ripening 15 days later than Arapaho. Apache produces the largest fruit of the 3 thornless cultivars. The fruit weighs 10 grams. Resists orange rust. The Apache Blackberry is very productive and selected because of its great flavor, good yield and very large fruit. The flavor of these shiny black fruit makes them an ideal choice for eating fresh or for use in your favorite pies, jams and jellies. They ripen in mid to late June. Space 5' apart in 5' wide rows. For one plant space plant in a 6' circle. Once established, Apache Blackberry plants do not require the support of a trellis or fence to grow; the canes that bear fruit are very strong and stand erect. The new canes of the blackberry plant should be tipped at a height of 42 inches during the growing period and prune them once they have produced fruit. They reach a mature height of 3 to 6 feet. Following a recommended care guide in regards to the soil selection, planting, mulching, harvesting, watering and pruning will help you endlessly enjoy the sweetest flavor of your home-grown Apache Blackberries.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Apache arrived in good shape. Can't wait to plant it.
