Considered one of the more winter hardy and productive thornless varieties available, Chester blackberry produces large, high-quality fruit that ripens in early to mid-August. Fruit has good flavor when fully ripe, and does not soften or lose its shiny black color in hot weather. Chester plants are vigorous and show resistance to cane blight.

Reviews

These thornless blackberries grow VERY quickly & will take over if not kept in check.
They produced fruit 1 year after planting.
After 2 years, the 16 plants produced 1 cup of ripe blackberries per day. They are disease resistant & we had no problems with insects.

I purchased 500 of these to start a business after I retired. They came packaged wonderfully. We had a very cold spring and a week after they were planted we got hit with a LOT of rain. The poor plants were swimming. once everything finally drained though, they all came through. I only lost 2. The ones that did the most swimming were a little slow coming on but they did finally come on. The next year they even were able to produce even though they didn't have a lot of growth from the first year. I would definitely recommend Nourse Farm plants.
