Zones 5b-8a  Extra sweet berries dazzle like diamonds on vigorous vines. These sparkling white berries were developed by the great Luther Burbank, legendary plant breeder of the early 20th Century. Burbank, who was also responsible for the Russet Burbank potato and the Shasta Daisy, took a chance mutation white blackberry that was found growing in the wild in New Jersey and bred a more bright white berry. The result, introduced in 1916, was a stunning alabaster fruit with exceptional sweet flavor. This variety never transcended its reputation as a garden novelty and for that reason the Snowbank completely disappeared from the commercial market. We are delighted to offer the Snowbank Blackberry after many years of anticipation! It almost went extinct, one of the most exciting rediscoveries ever!

Please consider these terms before ordering live plants: Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of March to the end of May. We will try to ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed exact delivery dates. Plants may arrive too early and have to be kept inside until the weather warms. Plants may arrive late, as well. Due to the sensitive nature of small plants, there is the possibility of a crop failure. If such a situation occurs, we will do our best to issue you a refund in a timely manner. Last minute losses can occur at any point in our shipping timeline, and we may have to issue a refund even late in the season. No orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER MARCH 1, 2019)

Review:

Ordered last year. Plants arrived healthy. Planted right away in part shade. Grew very little last summer, but have come up strong and healthy this spring. Already 18" tall and look great, bushy and dark green. Have them at the back of the yard where rain water runs downhill to them, but doesn't stand. They seem happy.

Review:

Hey, Mine came 4 -2018. Small but beautiful plants. I kept them in pots (10" terra cotta) for the spring and in summer put them out in the best spot I had. Very excited! After slowly growing all 2018 until winter they went dormant. 1st year a few leaves, building up the roots but no cane growth (which is normal for very young plants). Now it is 4-2019 and they are doing great. Here in San Francisco, they came alive and out of dormancy in late January. Now they are sending up new shoots and are already 12" high. These will be the canes that should fruit in 2020. Yes, they came small but they are nice plants and Baker Creek did a great job of telling us they may be pretty small. No matter-they will grow like a blackberry should grow. They are not really hard to grow just don't forget to water them (and don't overwater either-wait till the top of the soil is a bit dry before watering again. Do not let dry completely dry out). Grow like a blackberry-cause they are-have faith-Baker Creek!

What are the pros? novelty

What are the cons? tiny, tiny size

Review:

My two very tiny plants arrived last year in excellent health. I potted them up and kept them in my cool greenhouse until all danger of frost was past. They grew respectably last year, given their initial tiny size, in the garden bed I prepared for them. About mid-March this year, they began showing signs of new growth. I now have two actively growing bushes of a size sufficient, I hope, to produce berries. I eagerly await that development. I see now that you warn folks about the tiny nature of shipped plants. I do not recall seeing that caveat when I ordered mine last year. I think it is good to set expectations correctly, especially so that less-experienced gardeners don't become frustrated. My ratings above reflect the fact that I have not yet seen berries, so I can't fully evaluate the plants. Similarly, I would only recommend these to very experienced gardeners because of their tiny starting size.
