Blackberry canes are green to dark purple. Leaves are also green to purple depending on the season and have frequently been used in folklore for medicinal purposes. Certain cultivated varieties of blackberries are conveniently thorn-less and hence are more comfortable to pick. Blackberries are exceptionally high in nutritional value and taste sweet as well. Berry growth usually peaks in June or July. Harvest berries when they are entirely black and come off the plant easily as under-ripe blackberries are tart and will not ripen once picked. Blackberries are self-pollinating and propagate quite easily. Plant blackberries in late fall. In colder climates, plant these in early spring.
Planting may be done in late fall for warmer climates but if you live in a cold area, waiting until early spring is recommended, especially for hybrids that are susceptible to shallow temperatures.

Planted in fertile soil with good drainage, and full sun, once established, these plants tend to thrive with minimal effort on the gardener’s part. If you have doubts about the quality of your soil, fertilizing with organics is a good idea. Mature height depends on the variety you choose. Allegheny’s, common in the eastern U.S. can grow from 3 to 6 ft., the Californian from 2 to 5 ft., Highbrush and leafy flowered are 3 to 6 ft. Tall.
