  • Description

    Darrow  is a thorny, erect blackberry variety which has been developed at Cornell University and selected for cold hardiness. Darrow produces fruit on laterals of the floricanes. 

    Shoots grow from the ground on blackberries. First year shoots are called primocanes. Canes two years and older are called floricanes. These older canes produce side shoots or branches known as laterals, this is where the fruit is produced.
