Blackberry 'Baby Cakes'

Description

Baby Cakes is a dwarf, thornless blackberry perfect for container gardening with its compact habit. Spring and early summer bring bright white flowers. In summer, large, sweet berries present on top of the plant in a fireworks-like spray of fruit. The plant has a somewhat round shape with upright growth reaching 3-4' in height. In most regions, this blackberry will produce twice with a mid-summer floricane crop and a mid-fall primocane crop. The later crop is sometimes inhibited by high summer temperatures so gardeners in areas with hot summers may need to rely primarily on the floricane fruit.
