Prime-Ark Freedom Thornless Blackberry is an early-fruiting ever-bearing variety of the deciduous shrub that produces heavy yields of very large fruits their first year.  The pink-white rose-like flowers give way to clusters of fruits in which ripen in summer on established canes and again in fall on the new growth.  Fruits best in full sun and rich, moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Prime-Ark Freedom is self-fruiting and has good disease resistance, but is intolerant of wet soils.
