SKU E550
Rubus fruticosus 'Loch Ness'

Try this new, richly sweet/tart, thornless Scottish blackberry for its monstrously large, shiny black fruit and better cold weather tolerance. Semi-erect canes are highly productive and can be grown like raspberries, with little support. Space canes 6' apart.

Expect a big crop of fruit that ripens later, in August and September, to extend the season when grown together with the earlier-fruiting, trailing, R. ursinus varieties. Yield averages 8 pounds per plant. USDA Zones 5-9.
Size: 4" Pot

Looks healthy. Hope it keeps growing.

Hardier than advised

Planted one of these in my zone 4b/5a community garden plot two years ago - without any support, albeit growing against the fence - and it's already loaded with ripening berries. Survived two bitterly cold Minnesota winters without a lick of damage. From my prior experience growing this variety in southwestern Wisconsin (planting stock also purchased from Raintree Nursery), I can attest the fully ripe fruit is glossy-black and deliciously tangy. Makes the best blackberry jam!

Blackberries a plenty

All five 4” potted plants arrived in good shape. I have repotted them into larger pots while I wait for the weather to cooperate.


Came in nice and alive, and is growing wonderfully

spring delivery to Alaska

I ordered these blackberry plants in the fall and had the option for a spring delivery. I received them early in May, in excellent condition. I have not yet planted them in the ground, as they needed to be hardened off for the Alaska climate and the rule of thumb here in South Central Alaska is to wait until Memorial Day before planting in the ground, safely past the usual last frost date. Our spring here is progressing quite nicely, but nighttime temperatures are not consistently above 40 degrees yet. I live just north of Anchorage in a well known farming community. My planting zone is nearer to 4, so I am taking a bit of a chance on these zone 5-9 plants, but I am hopeful and very excited to give these a try. Customer service has been very good.
