Wild Treasure Thornless Trailing Blackberry
Rubus ursinus 'Wild Treasure'
(formerly ORUS 1843-3) The wild meets the thornless! An incredible find for the backyard gardener. Oregon State University researchers have crossed the uniquely delicious flavor of the Cascade Trailing Blackberry with the thornless 'Waldo' variety to make a self fertile selection perfect for your garden. Wild Treasure vines are very productive and the fruits are so sweet and delicious they amaze judges and win every tasting panel.
They average two grams in weight, about 1/3 the size of a Marionberry but more than twice the size of their wild cousins. Trellising will keep the thin canes off the ground and make them easier to harvest from. USDA Zones 7-9.
