A thornless blackberry variety Rubus fruticosus ‘Chester’ or Hardy Blackberry produces one crop each year. In the spring pinkish-white 5 petal flowers bloom followed by berries in the summer. Best grown in moist, rich, slightly acidic soil. Prune the old canes to the ground in late winter and tie in new canes for best results.
