Ordering has concluded for the season. The plant selection on our website is what is overwintered at the nursery. Our Spring 2022 plant and product catalog will be available later this winter.
Chester is the hardiest thornless blackberry. It produces very large, high-quality berries, up to 1" long, with exceptional flavor. The berries stay firm on the canes longer than most varieties. Chester is disease resistant and self fertile.
