Apache blackberries

This variety, developed by the University of Arkansas, is a thornless blackberry bush variety that is erect, meaning it grows upright and is sturdy and self-supporting although it may need minimal trellising to keep canes from arching over when fruiting. Apache’s berries are large and glossy black; quality is considered good, with ripening occurring from July to early August. Canes are vigorous and prolific.

  • Large conical fruit
  • Resistant to orange rust
  • Hardiest of thornless blackberries
  • Fruit is well presented for picking
