We have a blackberry called Early Harvest that is older than I am. (close to 60) Just like the name says, it ripens early for a blackberry about the last week of raspberry season we start picking these blackberries. I got starts from a neighbor who had had then for years and that was 26 years ago. If you can get them I recommend Early Harvest. Dave

I've never heard of people actually planting blackberries. Here in S.W. British Columbia they grow wild in every garden, ditch and in the bush. Everybody picks their secret place. Blackberry wine and jam and crumble are always available even if you're broke. k
