Ouachita Mid-Season Blackberry Bushes

Pronounced more like washita, these modern blackberries are among the best of the sweetest and less tangy varieties intended for direct consumption, with or without cream. The fruit are a splendid size, firm and glossy, and the thornless, upright stems are so easy to manage and keep in a limited space.

  • Large, sweet fruit for eating fresh, not cooking! 
  • Self-fertile.
  • Thornless
  • Upright plant, usually won't need support in sheltered locations
  • Crops from August into September 
  • Resistant to anthracnose
  • To 2 x 2 metres

Growing Ouachita Blackberries:

You can get away without support in a sheltered location, and if you trim long one-year-old stems to about 1.5m in their first winter, so that they don't flop over from the weight of the fruit. Otherwise, a single wire is sufficient, or they grow well against a wall.

Spacing: 2 to 3 metres apart.

Did You Know?

University of Arkansas, 2005. The Ouachitas (pronounced Washi-tah) are a mountain range spanning Arkansas and Oklahoma, and there is a Ouachita tribe to this day. The word could be derived from one, or several, of three roots. In Choctaw, ouac is buffalo, owa is hunt, and chito is large, so it could mean either 'large buffalo country' or, much to the buffalo's consternation 'big hunting ground'. It could also be derived from a Caddo word meaning 'good hunting ground'.
