Chester vs. Triple Crown Blackberry
So, I have both Chester and Triple Crown Blackberry plants planted. I planted them last Spring so this is the first year I'll get fruit. They have grown very nicely and quickly filled up the trellis.
I've read that Triple Crown ripens first by a couple of weeks. However, my Chester has been in bloom for about 4-5 days now while the Triple crown is just starting to show signs of the flower buds developing. Logic would suggest that the Chester would fruit first then.
Am I wrong? Those who have both, does the Chester blossom first but fruit second?
PS. Every variety I have has blossomed before the Triple Crown except the Doyle. (Ouchita, Apache, Arapaho, Navaho, Black Satin, Boysenberry, Loganberry, wild dewberries, etc).
