Arapaho Blackberry plants are a thornless, cold hardy disease resistant blackberry cultivar. The Arapaho Blackberries do not need a trellis and have an excellent sweet flavor. Arapaho Blackberry plants are heavy producers of 1-2 inch firm blackberry fruits, with exceptionally small seeds, that have an excellent sweet flavor and are a good size. Begins bearing fruit in 2 years and yields 2 to 4 quarts per vine. Arapaho Blackberry ripens two weeks earlier than Navaho and also produces sucker plants which allow the Arapaho Blackberry to quickly establish a solid fruiting hedge row of plants. They ripen in mid-late June for about 4 weeks and reach a mature height of 3 to 6 feet.

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.
