Planting & Care:

1. Planting: Plant in an area of either full or partial sunlight with well-drained soil that is moist but not waterlogged. Spring is the best time for planting. 

Water before planting. Dig a hole twice the width of pot. Backfill and plant 1″-2″ above soil level. Water and add more soil if needed.

2. Fertilizing: Mulch plants 1-2″ deep around plant, avoiding area closest to stem.

3. Pruning: Prune after fruiting, twice a year. In summer, pinch out the tips of new canes as they reach 3 feet. In late winter, remove all canes at ground level that fruited the previous season and remove any young canes that are diseased, crowded, or spindly. Shorten the fruiting laterals to a length of 1 foot to 1 ½ feet. 

4. Pollination: This is a self-fertile plant and no pollinator is required.

5. Harvesting: Your blackberries are ready to pick and eat when they fall right into your hand. When they easily fall off without plucking, then they're perfectly ripe. The longer the stay on the branch, the sweeter they become. Blackberries store exceptionally well in the fridge and freezer.

Pollination Info

Navaho Blackberry Pollination

Navaho Blackberrys are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Navaho Blackberry will drastically increase the size of your crop.
