Navaho Blackberries in SoCal
I made a mistake and purchased a Navaho plant from Berries Unlimited. I live in Southern California, I didn't have time to research and assumed, wrongly, that blackberries have no chill requirements. I was planning to install on an east wall, and I live a bit up the hill so I can get away with planting outside my zone, which is like 11. I read now that Navaho has an 800 hour chill requirement :( Is there any point to installing this plant or should I just throw it away? My real estate in the small yard is valuable. Anyone in hot regions successfully grow Navaho? Anyone have an outstanding Blackberry for inland SoCal (Altadena)? Thanks.
