This plant grows best in fertile, loamy, well drained soil. It's berrys are produced in late spring to mid summer and are excellent for jellies, pies and preserves. Beware: They are also popular with the local wildlife, which may get to them before you do.

Though not thornless, it is called "nearly thornless." I have not had mine long enough for production, but am looking forward to it. Hopefully I can change to positive soon.
