Marionberries

Zone Zone 8 | Dianed1971 added on October 7, 2015 | Answered

Does fruit grow on new or old wood? How do I prune them, if any? At the end of the fruit season, do I cut off the long straggly vines or weave them into the trellis? I know to prune the vines that produced this year, but do I have to leave all that length?

    The berries form on 2 yr old canes.
    To prune remove all but 6 to 12 of the healthiest new canes from each plant, cutting the canes back to the ground.
    Wrap the remaining canes around the support.
