Thornless Blackberries
« on: February 10, 2024, 08:27:18 AM »
Bought a couple plants from Walmart last year and forgot about them, to the point where I ran over one with the lawnmower. The other survived in some overgrown weeds and rewarded me thus:

Wow! February is awfully early for them. Any idea what the variety is?

Galatians522, no idea, unfortunately--I just remember they were thornless. Was surprised nothing got to them before me--I did cover them with an organza bag once I discovered them. They were already darkening up then.

Thanks for the info, Ognin525! So the end tip of the "stalk" should be buried? To have it make more plants? If so, I'm all in favor of that! There was one other fruit that developed later, and something got to it before me--I'm thinking the chickens, but they're not talking . . .

Hahaha "I'm thinking chicken's but there not talking" i lost it reading that!!! Ya when you stick the tip of the branch in the ground you will have a 100% chance or roots iv never had it fail. I'll stick them in and go around a month or so later checking for roots before cutting the branch to multiply the plants quickly. You can do this into a pot as well to spread them around. Best to get about 3inches if possible but iv just put them under wet leaves and they rooted lol. Now you have to get to work making more than your chickens can eat so you get some.
