About Apache Blackberry:

The Apache Blackberry is an erect, upright growing, thornless blackberry developed by the University of Arkansas in 1999.   Apache bears large, high quality fruit a little later than many other cultivars.  The fruit is sweet and is an excellent berry for eating fresh, as well as freezing, or for jams and jellies.   It is an excellent choice for home gardens.

Aside from producing an abundance tasty fruit for jelly, jam and cobblers,  blackberries can also be utilized in many useful and attractive ways in the landscape.  The upright cultivars can be used as hedge row, make a dense and impenetrable barrier/boundary planting, or grace a trellis.
