Prime-Ark® Traveler (P.A. Traveler) is the newest release from Dr. John Clark, University of Arkansas, available in limited quantities for 2016. It is thornless, but otherwise reported to have similar characteristics as the Prime-Ark® 45. Plants have vigorous, up-right growth and are productive.  Fruit is large, firm and has good flavor. Berries are reported to have slightly better shipping charteristics than P.A.® 45. P. A.® Traveler will perform best when the primocanes are tipped at about 15 inches and again at 30 inches as discussed on our web site in the variety description. We highly recommend P.A.® Traveler as a new alternative for primocane production and when thornlessness is required.

Berry Size: Med/Lg
Best in Zones: 6 - 9
Firmness: Firm

special features
Fall-bearing or primocane blackberries respond favorably to tipping! As the primocanes reach 12-15” in height, break or cut ¾-1” off the tip of each cane to force branching. Tip again when branches reach 30”. This process stimulates earlier fruit development, keeps plant height in check, and increases yield.


I am at 4500 ft in the Central Highlands of AZ with the possibility of a freeze in Mid May. Alkalie soil. I planted 25 Traveler plants last year. Lost one due to watering mistake. The rest are very vigorous. I had excellent Floricane production this year. Picked 2 quarts today. I got behind in my pruning so the later canes are falling down. Excellent size berries
