Texas is More than Tumbleweeds
Berries for Texas is not the first place you think of for berries. However, berry plants can be grown in Texas to add variety to your garden.
If you want to grow berries for Texas, first think plump blackberries. Blackberries are the most natural berry plants to grow in Texas in the home backyard garden. Blackberries can thrive in a variety of soils as long as drainage is good. Plan for about 1 to 2 quarts of blackberries per foot of blackberry row and plant your garden accordingly. Frequent watering is beneficial to the blackberry so make sure there is a water supply easily accessible. If the site of the tangled canes and thorns don't appeal to you, try training them to grow on the trellis which will also save space. Watch the berries go from flowers to red beans to the delicious juicy blackberries.
Nothing beats fresh strawberries in the spring but makes sure you plant them in the fall. Fruits can usually be grown for several years in some climates. However, berries work best in Texas if they are grown as an annual plant over the winters to eliminate the need to care for the plants over the harsher summers.
Blueberries cannot be forgotten. One single rabbiteye blueberry plant can produce 15 pounds of berries per year! Take notice; blueberries will require a bit more care as they need an acidic soil which occurs more extensively in the East and Southeast Texas and localized in North, Central and South Texas. Blueberries will also require a water source close by with well-draining soil so a rain collecting system would be ideal for blueberries. The rabbiteye will bloom in the spring, with blueberries in late May to late June, and in the fall the leaves turn a crimson color to add color to your garden.
Whichever berry is your choice, don't forget that berries can be grown in Texas.
