More about 'Triple Crown' Thornless Blackberry...

Triple Crown is the latest and the greatest, USDA-ARS, blackberry release. It produces distinctly sweet berries, and many consider it to be the tastiest, most flavorful thornless blackberry that the USDA (or anyone else) has ever introduced. Triple Crown is a semi-erect, thornless bush, and unlike the typical Arkansas thornless blackberry varieties, it has an unmistakable trailing growth characteristic. Its fruit matures later in the season than most of the Arkansas thornless varieties, and it sustains a nice, long ripening period (~ 5 weeks) for many days of fruitful picking. Triple Crown has grown very successfully on both the East and West coasts. Maybe the only drawback noted on Triple Crown is that it has received lower marks for its post-harvest potential - as its berries do not seem to handle or store quite as well as some of the other thornless varieties. However, what Triple Crown may lack in post-harvest potential is definitely more than made-up for with its unrivaled flavor and eating quality! There are much worse problems to have than that of being forced to eat lots of delicious berries, rather than putting them up for long-term storage...

Triple Crown is a sun-loving, self-pollinating floricane, and it appears to have good overall disease resistance. Plant and grow the later ripeningTriple Crown in your garden, along with some early and mid-season varieties, and have fresh blackberries in all sizes, shapes, and flavors - the entire season-long!

As it truly is a brand new release, the jury is still out on a more exact, more narrow range/consensus for the ideal number of chill hours Triple Crown requires in order to reach its greatest fruiting potential. However, the data collected so far indicates that Triple Crown will need 500-800 chill hours to attain its maximum level of fruiting productivity (please see chart/map below).
