Blackberry Bush: Growing blackberries may feel like a waiting game, but hang in there. Once you master the long game, the fruit it bears will be worth the patience.
A newly-planted blackberry bush will produce clusters of dainty white flowers that bear the berry in small amounts during the first season. The perennial species will grow a few more in year two, eventually supplying you with copious amounts of sweet berries to enjoy each summer.
You can expect a lifespan of twenty to twenty-five years. A plant in optimal health can yield ten to twenty pounds of fruit per season.
The blackberry bush is a favorite of the berry-producing plants at TN Nursery.
When to Harvest Berries From Your Blackberry Bush
The plant will blossom and then produce small white berries. Those tiny berries will grow in size, eventually darkening. They will deepen to a lovely, rich red hue, then turn to a deep-purple to-black color upon ripening.
Ripe berries will be plump, with just a little give when you give them a gentle squeeze.
Blackberries provide substantial nutritional value, giving you dietary fiber and an array of essential vitamins and minerals. Eating them freshly harvested and raw delivers the best nutrition. However, you may also enjoy baking with them. They make delicious muffins, pies, cobblers, or homemade ice cream.
Where to Plant Your Blackberry Bush
The blackberry bush is a North American native species, so let's start by looking at where they grow in the wild. Uncultivated blackberry bushes grow in brambles along the edges of forests or amidst clearings or glades. This location provides several hours of sunlight per day or at least a healthy dose of light shade. The sunshine is necessary for ripening the delicious berries to perfection.
Like most fruiting plants, your blackberry bush needs plenty of water--about an inch per week. It will do well without your help if you live in a rainy climate; otherwise, a lovely drink of water during hot spells will do the trick. It likes well-draining soil—plans to fertilize the plant in the spring, preferably when it flowers.
