Rubus fruticosus Waldo


  • Introduced:            1989
  • Origin:                     Oregon,
  • Use:                         Dessert
  • Season:                    mid July - end August/early September

Wading through overgrown thickets to collect your brambles need not be an eduring memonry as they can be grown on wires and thornless cultivars are available.
Waldo was raised in a breeding programme collaboration between the University of Oregon and the United States Department of Agricuture, and was the first genetically thronless, trailing blackberry to be released. Waldo is a compact grower,having short branched canes, producing glossy berries on short fruiting laterals with berries that are around 5 to 6g in weight and have a good blackberry, sweet flavour. A good choice for growing at home.

Blackberry Waldo plants are available from Fruitscape between November and March for 2012/13 planting season as 1 year old, bare rooted plants priced at £4.99 including postage and packing to Mainland UK
