LOCH NESS THORNLESS BLACKBERRY. was patented in 1989 as a semi-erect blackberry cultivar with large fruit size, winter hardiness 8 to 10 degrees below zero Fahrenheit, high yield and earliness of ripening.
This cultivar exhibits vigorous sturdy shoots which are erect during the early part of the season. These become semi-erect as growth proceeds though the tendency to become semi-erect becomes less marked in older established plants. The stems are angular, typically pentangular, thornless and may be either green or pigmented. The canes of Loch Ness variety usually become a deep purple in the autumn.
The fruits are blunt-conical in configuration and large. When fully ripe they are a deep black and slightly glossy with little or no downiness. The flavor is typical of blackberries with slight acidity. Berries are firm, have excellent storage capability, but there is small tendency for frozen fruit to turn red, especially if not fully mature when picked.
Winter hardiness is excellent. Widely used in commercial production. Zone 5-7 offered by Pense Berry Farm.
