blackberry first year production? Mulberries?
Can anyone help me clear up my confusion about blackberries? I have several large community garden plots and am looking for some fast producing fruit besides my strawberries. I have found kiowa, brazos, and an unknown thornless variety of blackberry at local nurseries. Have been reading what people have to say about blackberries here on the forum. Since the plants only fruit on the second year canes, it seems impossible to get any production the first year. However, based on the dates of posts, it seems that since people have gotten berries the first year. I know that I will not get the best harvest, but is it possible to get one? I know sometimes things work slightly differently here in Florida. Also, what about a dwarf out potted mulberry? My biggest concern is fastest and best producti oron over flavor. Any input or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
