    More about 'Arapaho' Thornless Blackberry...

    Arapaho is a superb, thornless blackberry that was released in 1993 from the University of Arkansas (U.S. Plant Patent 8510). It is a hardy, disease resistant variety that produces very nice, sweet berries with small seeds, on erect, thornless canes. It is one of the earliest to ripen of the Arkansas thornless varieties, and has very good post-harvest potential. Just as it is one of the earliest ripening, Arapaho is also one of the earliest to flower. For this reason Arapaho does best when it is grown in areas that are a little less prone to having late spring frosts. This lessens the risk of freeze damage to the developing flowers/fruit, which can seriously undermine, or even altogether debilitate, the overall quality of the berry crop. Arapaho is an excellent variety for growing in the southern U.S., and especially the deeper southern region(s). It quickly establishes a solid fruiting hedge, and with its erect, upright growth habit, Arapaho is great for home gardeners because it does not require the support of a trellis, or a trellis-system of any kind. One thing is for sure - with Arapaho in your garden, nobody will enjoy the bounty of freshly-picked, juicy, sweet blackberries any earlier in the season or sooner than you will!

    Arapaho blackberry is a sun-loving, self-pollinating floricane, and has demonstrated good resistance to both Double Bloom-Rosette (DB-R) and Orange Rust diseases.

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