Rubus spp. ‘Arapaho’
The Arapaho blackberry is an erect, early-ripening, thornless shrub that produces large red and black fruit. The berries are firm and tasty with small seeds — good for making jams and syrups. And there’s no need for a trellis, as this plant is self-supporting. Bears fruit on 2-year old canes.
