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.

Size: 4" Pot


Ask a Question
  • How tall do these get

    As a vine they are considered indeterminate and will grow as long as possible. They are not free standing and require a trellis if you want to keep them off the ground.

  • I’m in alaska. Anchorage area. I want to purchase for trellis and raised bed. What do you think?

    If you are in zone 7, and they are heavily mulched, they could do okay. If you are not in zone 7 they may not survive.

  • Should I be concerned about possible hybridization between this selection and other local native species of blackberry/Rubus?

    Yes and no. Cross pollination will not change the quality of the fruit, but any viable seed from the fruit will by a hybrid.

  • What is the recommended spacing?

    As a crown-based crawling vine, spacing is kind of irrelevant. You can do it as little as a foot apart, but they will spread an unlimited range over time.

Great berries!

Vigorous plant! In the first year, it sent out long canes which fruited pretty well this year. The primocanes this year are nearly 6 feet long! Very healthy. The berries are lovely, a nice conical inch-ish length. Good flavor but pretty tart, even when fully ripe. Nice small seeds. In the PNW, the berries are ripening in early July.
