Description

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 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
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.
Care Guide

Plant blackberries in well-drained soil and in full sun. The spring is the best time to plant for most (but not all) regions. Blackberries do not usually need pruning their first year. Should be a well drained high in humus or organic matter, no less than 2%. The soils should be slightly acid 5.8-6.8PH. They prefer sandy loams with course sands or clays. It is much easier to grow blackberries if they are mulched. Mulches are applied from 4-6 inches deep either to the row areas alone or to the whole soil surface. Straw, old hay, sawdust and shavings may be used, but should be weed seed free. Mulch should be applied sometime between late fall and early spring when the soil moisture is plentiful. Mulch can act as a fertilizer as well. Adding manure in the winter months to existing mulch is a great idea. Follow instructions on bag or sprinkle lightly the total area of your planting.
