CARE
Care Provide fertile, mildly acidic, well-drained soil. In hot summer regions, shelter from harsh sun, and mulch to keep roots cool. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Feed in early spring. After harvest, prune away canes that have fruited. Leave newer canes to produce next season's crop; train on trellis.
HISTORY
Lore The name blackberry is a misnomer because this isn't a true berry. It's a drupe, an entirely different sort of fruit. The genus Rubus includes many different plants collectively known as "brambles" because they share viney growth and wickedly sharp thorns.
