Seedless Blackberries Print E-mail

Question: Is there such a thing as seedless blackberries?  If so where can I find some plants right away.
Thanks so much for your time, and your great website.

Berry farm worker picking blackberries.

Answer: I wish!!!  I thought the industry was doing well with all the new, yummy THORNLESS blackberry choices.  To the best of my knowledge, there is no seedless blackberry plants - at least not that is worth eating.  Given enough breeding time and I am sure that will change.  Using a Google search, I see lots of "seedless blackberry..." jams and deserts where the seeds are strained out.  A few mail order firms suggesting a seeded blackberry being considered "seedless".  I disagree.  I welcome being proven wrong because it would be a great seller.  As a leading nursery grower in the industry, I believe a good seedless blackberry plant would have come on our radar if it truly existed.

Arapaho blackberries are about the closest thing I've found. They do have seeds, but they are so small and soft they are unnoticeable, much like raspberry seeds.
