Can't pick them all!

Bought and planted three plants. The first year I got a handful of berries. The second year we got 12 cups every other day. This year I stopped weighing them when I reached 165lbs. My neighbors took over and got another 20lbs or so. Jam, Syrup, Wine I'm running out of things to make with them. Works out well on chain link fence. Canes grow 20 and 30 feet.

Great Plants

In the fall of 2009 I bought 3 black berry plants from Gurney, under a special where you bought 3 plants of their choice. 2 of the 3 plants did not survive my winter. I called and Gurney replaced the plants with 3 Triple Crown Plants. I was supprised and pleased with the up grade. The plants have grown very well and have a few large 6 foot long canes on them. I will be getting my first berries next summer. I can hardly wait. I love Gurneys.

these are as they say very productice,and hardy grow enormious runners ,spread really fast will take over,be prepared to cut them back every season,you are supposed to prune berries every season anyway.the taste is on the sour side for me,wish they produced a sweeter berry,they claim bushes with thorns produce sweeter fruit,i believe it,these produce a heavy crop of berries after first year,

I ordered a couple Triple Crown Blackberry plants and received them this spring. The starts were excellent and the plants have vined out nicely this summer. (one or two long leafy canes 4 feet or so) When I planted them into the permanent places the weather was rather warm, but they did fine and I expect that they will improve next year. They were worth the money and an excellent quality :)

I planted 3 triple crown and 3 black satin in the spring of 2008 and this year 2010 I picked 12 gallons of blackberries. I have a lot of jelly and some put back for cobbler and sold 3 gal. for $22.00 a gallon great plants.

The initial buying experience was not good -- delivery dates were very delayed, and when I called in late spring to sort out other order-related problems the customer help was useless (earlier in the year customer help was good). The plants arrived when the weather was very hot - not good for planting and much later than I was told they'd arrive. BUT - the plants were healthy and vigorous, despite being very hot from the truck, and are doing very well.

Received 10 plants about 5 years ago from Gurneys. I now have a thicket of large aromatic berries that have a very great blackberry taste. I usually pick over 50 gallons a year and still manage not to get all of them. They make a great cobbler and a great jelly and a wonderful wine.

bought 3 plants last year got my twigs in the mail planted them did not hold out much hope but was very surprised this year they are huge very trainable for shaping much fruit very good it is mid July and still much more ripening on the vines only drawback is I like em fresh the wife likes to make blackberry pie highly recommend buying just don't get discouraged when you see twigs show in the mail they will most likely thrive

I purchased and planted six of these plants three years ago. Five of them died. The one remaining has grown and spread to over 60 feet of blackberry plants growing along my privacy fence. This year we have harvested over 7 gallons of berries. The plants are pretty and thornless and make a great cover for my old fence. The berries and huge and sweet. I've made 9 pints of jam so far and have enough berries to make at least that much more.

Planted these berries last spring. Had a handful of berries last July but this July.......Looks like there will be blackberry jelly, blackberry pie and blackberry wine all from these six plants. You won't be disappointed, trust me.

Good this year

I ordered these last year, and they tried and tried, but didn't do much. And alas, they didn't come back this year. Gurneys promptly sent a replacement, and the new plants are going crazy!!! We thought we'd have a while before we needed to build them something to climb on, we were wrong, they are growing like crazy!!! We are hoping for berries this year.

The first 2 years I had a very low yeild. Now my 3 plants are 3 years old and this year I have been getting around handful to a pint a day of very large semi-sweet-tart berries for about a month now. I've gotten more thna I can eat. Great plant, have patients.

You must try these
Aug 23, 2008  |  By Valerie
I have grown these for 4 years now. The plants are highly disease resistant and produce huge berries. This year, I picked about 20+ pounds of berries. They will need a strong fence for support. Just prune to about 4 feet before Winter, feed in the Spring and early Summer, and wait for wonderful berries in August.
