The Chester Blackberry is a semi-erect berry that produces medium to large, round berries that are very deep black in color and super sweet.
They are considered a high quality, high yield berry with uses ranging from eating them fresh, using in preserves or blackberry wine. Being the hardiest of the thornless blackberries they are easy to grow and and the potential of 10′ canes means that you will need to train them on a trellis.
Pruning the Chester blackberry and cutting the previous year’s growth to maintain the plant will keep your berry patch healthy and happy.
