Q.

small blackberries

Anonymous added on June 12, 2015 | Answered

We have blackberries that came with the house along a block wall about 15 feet long. Trellis consists of wires screwed into the wall. The first picking (about 2 weeks ago was a little early). The fruit we are now getting is smaller, some to a point where the fruit is all seeds and very little flesh. What is causing this? We also planted some thornless blackberries 2 years ago at one end. That fruit is longer, more like a mulberry. Fruit on the newer plants also appear smaller than last year. What could be causing this? If I can feed to rectify it now, we have about 1/2 of the fruit that is ripening left on the canes. Otherwise, we will have to try your suggestion for next growing season. Thanks.
