The earliest fruiting blackberry on the market! Arapho berries ripen in mid-June, much earlier than most blackberries, and produce plump, sweet, tasty berries with the added bonus of exceptionally small seeds. Bushes are fully erect and self supporting and therefore do not need a trellis. Thornless, cold hardy, and very disease resistant. Developed by the University of Arkansas. Zones 5-8.
