06.05.07 THORNLESS BLACKBERRIES
My favorite plant in the garden is the blackberry. I found a wonderful thornless variety, “Chester,” in a mail-order catalog seven years ago. It sends up huge canes with delicious giant blackberries. We have enough berries from three plants to freeze for our entire family all winter. It blooms later than the wild blackberries with a larger flower which has pink petals instead of white.
