Thornless Blackberry (Rubus 'Chester) is best grown in moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Intolerant of wet soils. Raised beds should be considered in areas with heavy clay soils. ‘Chester’ is a semi-erect, thornless blackberry cultivar. This is a self-fruitful, free-standing, thornless shrub that produces one crop of fruit per year. Clusters of pinkish-white rose-like flowers in spring give way to firm blackberries of excellent eating quality that mature in summer
