RUBUS fruticosus BLACKBERRY Navaho 3L
Navaho is a productive mid-season variety with an upright growth habit. High yielding with a prolonged picking season. The fruits have a consistent conical shape with compact drupelets and good cohesion. Upright thornfree stems make for easy harvesting. The fruits are firm & juicy – perfect for all-purpose use. Eventual height: 2m (6ft). Eventual spread: 2.5m (8ft). Cropping season: late July-August. Self fertile.
This product is supplied in a 3L pot.
Plant 3m (10ft) apart in rows.
Best grown against a fence or wall for support in well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade.
Soak the root-ball before planting. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot. Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established.
Fruit is produced on the previous year’s stems. Tie in the new shoot – these will flower and fruit in the second year. Cut away the older stems and replace them with new vigorous shoots. Cut back damaged shoots in late winter and apply a general fertiliser.
