Fall time

Favorable Temperatures for Thornless Blackberry Plants

Thornless blackberry plants produce fruit in the warmer months of July, August, and September. After a season of giving you delicious blackberries to eat, the plants become dormant for the winter. You might think that when temperatures are no longer favorable for these fruit-bearing plants they will die, but if blackberry plants are kept in favorable temperatures, their dormant months are a fine time for them to grow their roots.
