1 year old plant, 2.5″ container
The largest thorn-less blackberry variety we have grown; it produces enormous, sweet, glossy 1 inch berries. Because of Chester’s high yield, the plants need to be supported. Its blossoms are a lovely pale pink, making it ornamental. The deep black fruit is rich in antioxidants, which helps prevent disease and slows down aging. Chester ripens 1 week earlier than Triple Crown. Hardiness Zones 5-9.
