Blackberry, Chester (Thornless)

Rubus fruticosus ‘Chester’

The Chester is a thornless variety of blackberry. It is an erect, or self-supporting, shrub, but can benefit from a trellis while it is strengthening its cane. It produces a large, sweet fruit with a very high yield. It was developed at the University of Maryland, and is the most cold tolerant of the blackberries we carry.
