Love blackberries, but can’t stand thorns? Then you need to get to know the Prime-ark® Freedom Blackberry from the Southern Living Plant Collection! This new thornless variety of Blackberry was developed by a breeding program at the University of Arkansas. The Prime-Ark Freedom is self-fertile and produces plump, delectable berries that ripen in mid-early season and are known for their outstanding flavor and sweetness. Furthermore, the Prime-ark Freedom flowers and fruits on the first years growth, meaning that you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor the very first year you plant it!
Use a slow release acidic fertilizer on your blackberry plants.
If this plant is ordered in winter it will be dormant on arrival!
