More about 'Natchez' Thornless Blackberry...

A 2007, University of Arkansas release (US Plant Patent 8510), Natchez is the most recent addition to our line of thornless blackberry varieties from the Razorback state. It has been blessed with essentially all of the quality attributes we have come to associate with the Arkansas thornless blackberries. Specifically, Natchez is an early season producer of very large (8-9g), sweet berries, on semi-erect, thornless canes, and is really a great selection for overall quality. However, the most notable attribute that Natchez possesses is that its yield potential is actually double (yes - 2X) that of Arapaho, its sister variety. As a result (along with its more semi-erect growth habit), Natchez may very well benefit from being trellised (or given some type of support), especially as it begins to develop and ripen its heavy loads of fruit in the late spring and early summer. Natchez fruit is firm, and with its Soluble Sugar content (9.5-10%), it stores well and has very good post-harvest potential. Besides being sweet, Natchez also has a notably good flavor profile among the thornless blackberry varieties - making it an especially fantastic choice for fresh eating, and/or for use in all sorts of sweet goods and desserts.

Natchez is a sun-loving, self-pollinating floricane, and it has demonstrated truly excellent disease resistance overall (which was one of the main focal points in its development). With Natchez, you will get a cutting-edge blackberry that was bred with the mindset of bringing together all the best attributes of the previously released thornless blackberries into a single variety that does it all!

Natchez requires 400-500 chill hours to attain its maximum level of fruiting productivity (please see chart/map below).

I received my blackberry plant in great condition. It's grown really big and is very healthy. I'm sure I'll enjoy the blackberries when it's time.
