ALL POTTED BLACKBERRIES, RASPBERRIES & BOYSENBERRIES: $10.99

STRAWBERRIES:  .50 EA. OR 10 FOR $4.00

BLACKBERRY CLASS
Prefers deep soil.  Deep rooted plant. Generally prefers a cool, humid region where it can be planted in full sunlight. Blackberries will produce in warmer climates than most raspberries. Plant 2-4 ft. apart in rows 6-9 ft. apart.

BLACK SATIN (Thornless)
Medium to large. Black. Honey sweet flavor. Vigorous grower, excellent for home gardens. Heavy yielding semi-erect thornless type with improved quality and hardiness, rarely suckers, very disease resistant. Hardy to about -15 degrees F
( Zone 5b). Ripens: July.

NAVAHO (Thornless)  The first fully erect, self supporting thornless blackberry.  Superior medium sized fruit - more sweet and less tart than other thornless varieties.  Ripens June to July.

BOYSENBERRY CLASS
Most adaptable to climates and soils, most productive per square foot of garden space, and most variable in use within the Blackberry family. Plant 2-4 ft. apart in rows 6-9 ft. apart.

BOYSENBERRY (Thornless)
Medium, reddish-black berry. Not as tart as blackberries.  Good for mild winter areas. Popular with home owners because it is thornless. Hardy to Zone 7. Needs winter protection below 10 degrees F. Ripens: June.

RASPBERRIES
Grows best in areas having a slowly warming, lingering spring.  Plant 2-4 ft. apart in 6-8 ft. rows in well drained soils.  Ripening: Spring/Summer-bearing cultivars produce canes that are biennial in habit, growing one year and producing the next.  Everbearing (fall-bearing) cultivars produce canes that bear fruit on the top portion of the current season’s growth in late summer and fall (usually late August to early October). If you leave these canes for next year, they will bear fruit on the portions that did not fruit the previous fall. Therefore this type can produce fruit in both June-July on the base of last year’s cane and late summer/early fall on top of current season’s cane. The earlier crop is usually small. 

CANBY RED (Nearly Thornless)  Large berries. Firm, sweet and excellent fresh or for freezing. Vigorous canes.  Nearly thornless at harvest heights. High level of virus and aphid immunity. Very hardy. Likes cooler summers.  Harvest June, July.

BABA RED   Everbearing Red Raspberry - Extra large berries up to 1 1/2" long. Wonderful warm weather variety particularly well suited to southern California's coastal and inland valleys. Fine flavor and good for all uses. Bears heavy crop May-July with a smaller late summer crop through fall. Hardy to zero degrees. Self-fruitful.

HERITAGE RED  Everbearing Red Raspberry. – Large, sweet, dark red berries. Moderate early crop in June, July. Heavier crop in August through Fall. Berries keep well on or off the vine. Upright growth habit. Self-fruitful.
