Chester Blackberry Bushes

Description of Chester Plants & Fruit:
Chester Thornless is one of the best of the late season blackberries. The crop begins in mid to late August and will continue until the frosts - in the Indian summer of 2009, we were still picking fruit in November.
Both the plant and the crops are big. The fruit are medium sized and very sweet, but if you pick them a bit early they have a nice tang to them.

Browse our variety of blackberry plants or see our full range of soft fruit bushes for sale.

Characteristics of Chester Bushes:

  • Self-fertile.
  • Thornless.
  • Big plant with canes up to 12' / 4 metres long.
  • Sweet flavour.
  • Crops from mid-late August until the frosts.

Growing Chester Blackberry Plants:

It is slightly less hardy than other breeds: if you live in a frost pocket in Scotland, it's best to wrap the canes up well with straw or garden fleece during winter to keep the worst of the frost off them.
Spacing: Chester is a big bush and needs its space. 3 metres between each plant should be fine.

Background Information on Chester Blackberry Bushes:
Bred in the USA.
