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; you just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER MARCH 1, 2018)

What are the pros? Truly rare

What are the cons? Fragile, Requires skill

Review:

The amount of sunlight I allowed it combined with my inexperience killed it, but it arrived healthy, promptly, and as always customer service received was above and beyond. There were two so I can't really blame anyone other than myself on that one. Can't stress enough how delicate they are, but I will definitely be trying again next year. Giving five stars for baker creek having tracked this one down from goodness knows where, I know I'm not the only one who heard of the fabled "white blackberry" but could never find it.

What are the pros? Wanted for 10 years

What are the cons? Extremely sensitive.

Review:

The plants are small (3") but looked pretty good initially. They arrived 4/23/18 and I suspected they were exposed to high temperatures in my mailbox. I was hopeful that the crowns were still healthy and the plants would eventually recover. I lost one of them today (5/7) after two weeks of slow decline, but the 2nd one (with 3 crowns) now looks like it might make it. I re-potted them in store bought African Violet soil, which should have the correct acidity and kept them out of direct sunlight. I suspect these plants are greenhouse or artificial light grown and not hardened to UV exposure. I suspect that putting these plants in direct sunlight right out of the box would easily kill them. The description of the size and sensitive nature of these plants is well stated and not exaggerated. The plants are inexpensive enough that even if I kill my remaining plant, I won't request a refund and will try again next year.

Too fragile for a novice

What are the pros? My challenge for future years

What are the cons? Too fragile for me

Review:

I'm a novice gardener, so others with more experience and time might have better results than me. They arrived as very small plants and I killed them within 2 days. I suspect that I overwatered them. I called and was sent another pair, free of charge. Two days later, the new ones were dead, too. I would like to try them again in the future, but not until I have honed my skills.
