Product Description

We have stopped shipping plants for this planting season.

We will begin taking reservations for plants in July for next season.  
Please check back with us then.

Generally ships from  December – May.

Chester is one of the best self-pollinating blackberry varieties available because of its huge yield, sweet fruit, cold hardiness, resistance to cane blight and, of course, lack of thorns. The fast-growing canes are sturdy, but still require a little support as they can reach up to 10′ long. Fruit comes on last year’s growth, usually in July. The juiciest, most flavorful berries come from a life in full sun, attentive watering, proper mulching and good weed control.

Chester trailing thornless blackberry plant produces large deeply-flavored, absolutely delicious berries for preserves and freezing. It’s best for fresh use on ice cream or baked into cobblers and pies. The grocery-store price for blackberries is nearly prohibitive these days. When one plant can produce as much as 20 pounds of berries, you can do the math. A must-have in the home garden.
