Navaho Summerlong® Blackberry

Blackberry

Description: Navaho is a mid-season floricane Blackberry of very high quality. Thornless and upright growing. Fruits are large, firm, sweet and juicy. Delicious if eaten fresh or used in jams and pies. Very easy to grow.

Blackberry Growing Tips: Happier planted in a sunny, sheltered site but they can tolerate light shade. Prefer moisture-retentive but well-drained soil. Blackberries are vigorous and need regular pruning. Tie in the shoots of newly-planted canes. Once they reach their first winter, cut back all sideshoots on the main cains. If you would like to eat the fruits yourself, don't forget to cover the plant to stop the birds getting them!
