New Thornless Blackberry

We would like to welcome a new Berry to our collection called the Thornless Blackberry. Our variety is: "Blackberry - Thornless Chester" One of it's best points is that in it's second season it is possible to get a bumper crop.

You can eat this berry when it turns black fresh off the vine or concoct a tart. I haven't tasted it myself but it is only a matter of time as I am a berry fan.

This spring I have noticed that berries such as blueberries and raspberries are also very popular among fruit enthusiasts.

I guess competing with bats, possums, birds and your family to eat these berries fresh from your orchard is worth it.

We have 40 coming of the new Blackberry - Thornless Chester so it will be interesting to see how this new American berry perform here in Australia.
