Unlike traditional blackberries that bear fruit
only on 2-yr.-old canes, Prime Jan produces
berries on new growth—a breakthrough for
Northern growers who have trouble over-wintering
blackberries. Fruit will form on 2-yr. canes
as well, allowing for 2 crops in warmer areas.
Erect canes grow 4-6 ft.; sweet berries ripen in
June and July. Zones 4-8. Bareroot. PP15788.

Depth: Same depth as they were in the nursery.
Spread: 4-5 feet
Sun/Shade: Full Sun
Yield: 4-6 quarts comparable to Apache & Ouachita
Foliage: Deep Green
Fruit: Floricane fruit averages 5 g, primocane fruit varies from 2-15 g, fruit typically 1-2” long
Comments: Primocaine fruiting- will grow a cane and produce fruit in the same season, typically blackberries are floricane fruiting, meaning they produce fruit on 2 yr canes. This is a major breakthrough for Northern growers where cold winter temps do not allow for overwintering of canes. They also produce fruit on the floricanes, allowing for 2 crops in traditional blackberry growing areas. Thorny, erect- don’t need trellising if tipped back Good flavor, sweet, essentially an everbearing blackberry
