Also known as 'Rubus fruticosus', Blackberry Merton Thornless is an exceptionally manageable and vigorous specimen, yielding some of the largest blackberries of any variety, often reaching up to 2.5cm in diameter! As an added bonus, the stems of the Merton Thornless are prickle-free so there is no need for gardening gloves. The deliciously sweet, tangy fruits are ripe for the picking in late August and September, and are best enjoyed in pies and crumbles or cooked into jams to be enjoyed long after the season has finished. Bare rooted plants supplied, ready to plant on arrival into well prepared soil. When planting, leave at least 2m spread between each shrub, and plant in a sunny location where possible to ensure optimum cropping.
