Product Details

  • Botanical Name: Rubus fruticosus 'Polar Berry'
  • Height: 4 - 6 feet
  • Spacing: Space 4 - 6 feet apart in the row. Leave 8 - 10 feet between rows.
  • Depth: Dig a hole twice the size of the pot the plant is in. Plant at the same depth as it was in the pot.
  • Spread: 4 - 6 feet
  • Sun/Shade: Full Sun
  • Foliage: Light green leaves mature to a bright green. Leaves and canes lack the hint of red usually present in blackberries. This is due to a lack of anthocyanin.
  • Blooms: May and June
  • Form: Upright
  • Flower Form: White blossoms.
  • Soil Requirements: Well-drained, rich, slightly acidic, moist soil, 5.5- 6.8 pH.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate growth rate.
  • Pruning: When the new shoots of erect blackberries reach 30-36 inches in height, cut off the tips. This will force branching lower on the canes and will cause the canes to thicken, making them better able to support a heavy fruit crop. During the winter, prune the laterals to 12-14 inches for convenient harvesting and larger berries. In late winter, remove any remaining dead or weak wood. Leave healthy, vigorous canes spaced at six canes per linear foot.
  • Size: 1/4 inch blossoms.
  • Fruit: Creamy white, sweet berries that are larger than a standard wild blackberry.
  • Pollinator: Self-pollinating
  • Comments :
    A White Blackberry! This unique blackberry was discovered on a farm in South Central Illinois, growing among some wild blackberries. Creamy white, sweet berries are produced on second-year canes. White flowers decorate the plant from May to June. Leaves and canes are green, without the red coloring that usually runs through other blackberry plants. This is due to the lack of anthocyanin. Enjoy this sweet wonder as a fresh snack, in jams, jellies, juice, or freeze to enjoy later.
