Blackberries, Boysenberries, Raspberries and Elderberries

Homegrown backberries are well worth the effort. The fruit are always in short supply in the markets, and wild patchs are quickly disappearing to urban sprawl. Most of the varieties we grow are bred for their size, production, and excellent fresh flavor. In the landscape they make great hedges and backdrops for the flower border. All blackberries are self-pollinating.
