Facts of note: A vigorous trailing vine that grows up to 20' long. Good for local fresh markets, canning, freezing, pies, ice cream flavoring, jams and jellies. Good shelf life. High quality, with flavor superior to Boysenberry. A cane berry hybrid frome 'Chehalem' and 'Olallie' developed in 1945 at Oregon State University that has gone on to dominate the commercial blackberry market.
Cane berries prefer a deep, well–drained, fertile soil and typically bear fruit on 2–year old wood with everbearers producing on first–year wood. They thrive in most soil types. Cane berries are versatile and hardy in the coldest climates where other fruits fail. Plant late winter to early spring. Space 2’–3’ in a row with 8’–10’ between rows.
