Doyle’s Thornless Blackberries are a gardener’s dream. Full delicious berries and graced by lovely flowers and foliage, they lack the two terrors of blackberry growing: there are no piercing thorns and they are not invasive. There are many new Thornless blackberries on the market but there are none that compares with this one, not even one! The other varieties only produce about 1 to 2 quarts per plant, but you already knew that, didn’t you? Others cannot grow in all frost zones from 3 to 10, but this one can and does. It is now producing in all 50 states and Canada. We have also sent plants to South America, Africa, and China. You can grow the Doyle’s Thornless Blackberry® on a grape type trellis for maximum production or in limited space locations, on a rose type trellis, producing a massive bush covered with blossoms, and later dozens of huge bunches of sweet, juicy blackberries. It’s outrageously tasty to go out in the morning to pick a large bowl of blackberries for your cereal or just eat them fresh with cream. Doyle’s Thornless Blackberries™ are exceptional when used for pies, cobblers, jams, jellies, ice cream topping, blackberry cider, or wines.
Using ordinary blackberries, one would need to plant at least 30 to even come close to the amazing Doyle’s Thornless Blackberry® production. That many plants take up a lot of garden or yard space and cost $30 to $90. Plants need several weeks to get established. Don’t pronounce it dead until it has time to grow. Production is slow in the first year because it is establishing itself. The 3rd year is when you will see the best production, producing large, sweet and juicy berries. Some have gotten 3 gallons in the first year. That, however, is not usual but it can be done with care and good weather.
