Polar Berry™ Blackberry - Rubus fruticosus 'Polar Berry'

Polar Berry™ is a unique blackberry that has white berries. White flowers that appear in late spring to early summer give way to creamy white, sweet fruit that grows on second year canes. The fruit is excellent for eating fresh as well as for jams, jellies, preserves, juicing or freezing for later use. Polar Berry™ has good disease resistance and is self pollinating. Grows up to 6' tall and wide.

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.
