For jumbo, ultra-sweet, utterly delicious blackberries in your own backyard, rely on classic Triple Crown. This semi-erect to trailing variety is very heavy-bearing, setting fresh new berries every day for a full month in early to midsummer in most climates. If you love big, juicy, flavor-packed berries for fresh eating, canning, and freezing, count on Triple Crown!

Reaching 8 to 10 feet high and 3 to 5 feet wide, and quicky forming a thick, stout central trunk that stands up to Mother Nature's roughest treatment, this shrub sets masses of long, arching canes packed with white blooms in late spring (irresistible to butterflies) that turn to fruit by midsummer. Best in full sun but tolerant of light shade, Triple Crown bears heavily every day for a month or more, giving you more than enough fruit for the family's immediate needs -- there will always be "leftovers" to can or freeze! And because this blackberry is self-fertile, you need plant only one, but you will find your crops even heavier if several are planted together.

Triple Crown needs rich soil, so amend it well with organic matter, and consider spraying the foliage once or twice during the growth period with Sea Magic, an all-natural seaweed growth enhancer. The canes are biennial, so cut them back hard after fruiting the second year. They will return even more plentifully in spring! Zones 5-9. Pack of three bareroots.

Best Blackberry I've ever tasted!
Donna J Grant from ME wrote on February 23, 2018

A friend was growing Triple Crown on his blackberry farm in Ohio. Triple Crown produces HUGE fruit that has amazing blackberry flavor without being overly tart, yet the sweetness doesn't make jam taste bland. We were sold at the first taste, and when we moved to Maine, we bought some to grow up here as well..

Beautiful plants!

I can't address the fruit...yet. However, I received large rooted, moist plants that are beautiful! I'm very enthusiastic and optimistic about these plants. They surpass my expectations. Will have to see how they do in my challenging part of the country/dessert. Will let you know, but be confident in the quality of plant you'll receive. Thanks Park Seed for another EXCELLENT quality plant!

How many years before fruiting plants bear their first crop?
For fruiting plants such as blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, fig, honeyberry, cranberry, and grape, it takes 2 years to bear the first crop. That does not mean you may not get some fruit before then. Depending on the size and maturity of the plant shipped, you may get at least a few pieces of fruit or a small quantity produced the first year. But, by the second year, you should have your first real crop of fruit to enjoy and fruit production will increase every year thereafter.
