Triple the quality, triple the flavor and triple the berries: That's what you'll get with the 3-in-1 Blackberry (Triple Crown, Ouachita and Arapaho). This unique triple-grafted blackberry plant has loads of benefits and loads of sweet fruit. Unlike most blackberries, 3-in-1 has another irresistible feature - it's thornless, so you'll be scratch-free after picking the berries!
A blackberry breeding program at the University of Arkansas has produced cultivars that taste sweeter while staying firmer than other types of blackberries. We're offering three of these superior blackberries grafted into one plant, and we've chosen cultivars with staggered harvest times so you'll enjoy berries over a long period of time.
In addition to being thornless, the 3-in-1 Blackberry has even more to offer, including earlier harvests, pest resistance, and hassle-free support. Other types of blackberries require some kind of support system because their canes fall to ground level, but the 3-in-1 Blackberry contains three cultivars that are classified as upright plants. Plus, they begin producing berries in their first year, unlike other blackberries that bear fruit on two-year-old canes.But the top benefit is its strong beginning. We've done all the work ahead of time so that you don't have to: Now, without any hassle on your part, your 3-in-1 Blackberry plant will produce so many berries that you'll probably need to pick them every day during harvest season!
But don't wait - get your 3-in-1 Blackberry Bush today!
3-in-1 Blackberry Bushs are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional 3-in-1 Blackberry Bush will drastically increase the size of your crop.
1. Planting: Blackberries prefer full sun but can tolerate partial shade. For the best berry production, make sure that your bushes get at least 6 hours of sunlight each day and are planted in well-drained soil.
Once you have the location for your bushes selected, dig a hole three times as wide as the root ball and just as deep. When it’s clear of debris, place your blackberry bush in the hole and make sure that it’s level with the ground and backfill the hole. Once you’ve finished this process, give your bush a long drink of water and mulch around the base to conserve soil moisture.
2. Watering: Keep the soil moist, but not over-saturated. Blackberries need about an inch of water of week and more during times of drought. Typically, this will mean watering when the surrounding soil is dry about 2 or 3 inches down.
3. Fertilizing: You’ll know when your blackberry bush needs fertilizing because it’s leaves will show some signs of discoloration. It’s best to fertilize early in the spring before new growth starts to emerge, then again after your berry harvest. Use a well-balanced, general all-purpose fertilizer like formula 10-10-10.
4. Pruning: After a year of growth in the early spring, take a sterile pair of sharp hand pruners and remove the tips of each woody blackberry cane. If they’re shorter than 24 inches long, only remove the tip back to about an inch. This will cause the bush to branch out wider and produce more berries.
After your berry harvest, it’s time to clean your Blackberry Bushes up. Blackberries will only produce on canes that are two years old, meaning once the cane has produced berries, it won’t produce more. Prune spent canes back to promote the growth of new ones.
