Rubus fruticosus 'Thornfree'
‘Thorn-free’ Blackberry - Fruit shrub

Dornenlose Brombeeren pflücken

Frische Brombeeren ohne Dornen! Die machen uns glücklich. Mit diesen ‚Thornfree‘-Brombeeren in einem Anzuchttopf ziehen wir unsere eigenen frischen Brombeeren im Garten. Beim Pflücken werden wir nicht von störenden Dornen gestochen. Die Früchte sind schön groß! Wir können den Obststrauch auch in einen Topf auf die (Dach-)Terrasse oder den Balkon pflanzen. Der Obststrauch ist im Blumentopf frostempfindlicher. Dann wickeln wir den Topf mit Luftpolsterfolie ein. Der Obststrauch blüht im Frühjahr. Dann erscheinen kleine weiße Blüten. Im zweiten Jahr nach dem Pflanzen können wir ab dem Sommer mit der Ernte beginnen. Die dornenlose Brombeere wächst in jedem feuchten Boden. In trockenen Zeiträumen gießen wir mehr. Für ein gutes Wachstum ist ausreichend Licht erforderlich. Wir pflanzen den Obststrauch daher in der (halb-)vollen Sonne.

Planting and flowering details
Harvesting Details
  • Planting
  • Blackberries can be grown as separate bushes or trained against a fencing or railing. Place sturdy poles in the ground that protrude about 2 feet above the ground and secure three solid wires between them. The rows should run preferably in a north-south direction and place the blackberries a metre (or more) apart from each other.
    Blackberry plants
    Prior to planting soak the root ball of the thornless blackberry in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a large hole and loosen the soil thoroughly. The soil can be improved by adding compost or humus to any garden soil. Plant the thornless blackberry at the correct depth in the hole, the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, press firmly and water immediately after planting. The thornless blackberry grows well in any garden soil in a sunny or partially shaded area.

  • Care
  • The thornless blackberry ‘Thornfree’ requires minimal maintenance, but it does prefer a position in full sunlight or partial shade. Fertilisation is not recommended as blackberries already have an excellent growth by nature. Give the plant extra water during dry periods. When the berries are entirely one colour they can be picked, usually in August and September. You can choose to enjoy eating the berries freshly picked, use them for making jam or they can even be frozen.
    Growing blackberries
    Every year you will see new shoots appear from the ground, which will bear fruits in the following year – branches that have borne fruit will then die off. Tie the new branches along wires, there should be about six shoots per bush. In late September, all shoots that have borne fruit can be cut off at ground level (they are usually brownish). By the end of February, new shoots will appear. Protection from birds is usually recommended.
