Our Bountiful Harvests™ 'Prime Ark'® Freedom everbearing blackberries are a game changer for homeowners looking for blackberries that are easy to care for and easy to pick.
Includes one pot of Bountiful Harvests™ 'Freedom' blackberries.
'Prime Ark'® Freedom blackberries are not only thornless, but produce a bountiful yield of stupendous fruits weighing 4 to 8 grams each. Enjoy right off the stem, or pick a basketful and craft up your favorite desserts! It took the world's largest blackberry breeding program at the University of Arkansas 17 years to develop 'Freedom', but it was worth the wait! 'Freedom' has revolutionized blackberry growing, and now you can have it in your own backyard.


Is this for you?
Exceptional fruit size! In university trials the berries on 'Freedom' were larger than any other blackberry tested. This is what home gardening is all about - giant berries, bursting with juicy-sweet nectar with a greatly extended harvest! These blackberry plants will provide sweet, plump berries that are full of vitamins and nutrients without the hassles of typical blackberry plants.

These prolific producers will bloom on both new and old wood, providing fruit twice each season! First in early summer (for about 30 days) and then from mid-August to early October. Limited on space? No problem! These blackberries feature upright canes meaning there is no need for staking and they can be planted directly in containers on the patio or deck.

This no-fuss blackberry is thornless, disease resistant, drought tolerant, cold hardy and self-pollinating! No more worries about scratches from sticky thorns! Even small children can enjoy picking fruit from these thornless canes. Plus, these low maintenance, homegrown blackberries are sweeter than store bought blackberries because they are not picked until full ripe. Commercial berries are typically picked early and are unable to develop the maximum sugar content.

Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment in any landscape. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.

Reviews from our customers...
I bought 2 last year
But mine only produced berries once not twice. Now the berries were big! But I'm hoping since this year will be second year production it will produce more than once.
