We are excited to introduce a new variety called “Von”. Von is the first thornless blackberry released from North Carolina State University. Von has exceptional qualities such as very high yields of fruit. The fruiting season is mid to late season. Von has large uniform fruit and great sweet fruit quality that is sweet and a favorite to many. One of the favorite qualities of Von is its small seed size.
Von produces high yields of berries for a duration of six weeks. The fruit is consistent from year to year. The average fruit yields per plant were around 26 pounds once the vine reached full maturity. Von is cold hardy down to -12 degrees. Zones: 5-10
‘Von’ is named in honor of Mr. Von Harvey Underwood, who worked in the fruit breeding programs at North Carolina State University for over 44 years.
