Bob Wells Plant of the Week

 NAVAHO THORNLESS BLACKBERRY – Adaptable from zone 6 to zone 9. This is a “self-supported” cane fruit so it needs no trellis and is late producing, extending the blackberry season to July or August depending on your climate.

Since it is a late blooming plant, you don’t have to worry about losing your crop to a late frost. Yields are high with large sweet berries and above all it is thornless and great tasting.

Find this plant and more at BobWellsNursery.Com – Bob Wells Nursery specializes in edible landscape plants and trees including: Fruit Trees, Berry Plants, Vine Fruit, Nut Trees, as well as the hard to find Specialty Trees. Find this plant and more at BobWellsNursery.com
