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.

Browse our blackberry bushes or our full range of soft fruit plants.


  • 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.
