Joan J Thornless Red Raspberry

(Rubus idaeus)

Full Sun. thornless! Everbearing

Thornless, stout canes produce very large sweet berries. It is a primocane or “everbearing” type: will crop early summer and again in the fall if only the dead (second year) shoots are selectively pruned out every winter. Most market growers (including us) mow down the entire plant every winter, resulting in a heavier crop of high quality berries in the fall only. Red raspberries require a raised bed to thrive in our heavy clay.  Plant 1’-2’ apart in row; will fill in row with suckers in a year or two.  Does not need trellising.  Self fertile. . North American native plant.

Triple Crown Thornless Blackberry

(Rubus fruticosus)

Full Sun to Part Shade. Sweet, Trailing type, extremely vigorous

Trailing type, needs trellis. Our most productive (per plant) of the sweet thornless types. Large berries, fast growth, smaller seeds.   Blackberries will tip root and give you many more plants if you fail to tie them to the trellis.  Canes can grow 10’ or more but best to tip them at 4′-7′.   Blooms very late so avoids the occasional freezes that can hurt the blossoms of earlier blackberries.  Blackberries do well in almost any soil in our region.  Mid to late-season ripening.   Space 5’ apart in row.  Self fertile. . North American native plant.

Amorpha False Indigo Bush

(Amorpha fruiticosa)

Full to Part Sun. Native nitrogen fixing shrub up to 18′ tall, but can be coppiced

Amorpha fruiticosa is an attractive native wildflower shrub. It is a legume, and is often used in permaculture plantings as a nitrogen fixer – usually with the plan to coppice the bush (“chop & drop”) because it will reach a fairly substantial size if not chopped down frequently. 15-18′ tall and spreading up to twice that width. NOT edible, it’s practical benefits are mostly beauty, nitrogen fixing and soil stabilization, and it also has some potential as a natural insecticide. Fast growing, thornless. Nitrogen Fixer. North American native plant.

St. Cloud Northern Half-High Blueberry

(Vaccinium corymbosum)

Full to Part Sun. Early season. plant two different varieties for pollination

Blueberries can be a challenge in our region’s heavy clay soils, though these soils are generally on the acidic side which blueberries need.  They will thrive with good site preparation and continued mulching; naturally acidic pine bark or pine needles are best, but hardwood chips/bark and sawdust will do.  Ideally, plant in slightly raised beds and amend the soil with generous peat moss, pine bark and alfalfa meal (or other nitrogen source); finishing with a good thick layer of pine bark mulch or pine needles.  Apart from their pickiness regarding soil conditions, blueberries are one of the best choices for practical edible landscaping; once established, they are a beautiful low maintenance bush with good fall color.  You may be fighting the birds for them, but if you plant them in front of a window you can at least think of them as a pretty bird feeder 🙂  Bird netting is an effective deterrent but you may still have chipmunks steal your fruit by scooting under the nets.  Our blueberries need at least 2 varieties for pollination.

early season.  One of the earliest varieties.  Med-large fruit with good flavor and high yields.  Needs another variety as a pollinator.  4′ tall.  Zones 3-7 . North American native plant.

Nero Aronia (black chokeberry)

(Aronia melanocarpa)

Full Sun to Part Shade. Blueberry-sized fruit born in clusters, high antioxidants. Self-fertile, but may produce better with pollinator. 3-4′ tall x 3-4′ wide

Medium-sized, attractive, native shrub with 3 season interest.  It is also a practical and prolific berry producer.  Aronias have gained fame recently as a super fruit due to their very high levels of antioxidants.  They are flavorful but astringent and not very sweet, so not super great to eat out of hand (although our picky toddlers loved them!).  However, they make a tasty addition to smoothies, jam, baked goods, etc.  The bushes are very productive and the blueberry-sized berries form in easy-to-pick clusters.  We have had some success harvesting with a blueberry rake, but prefer to just snip clusters; removing stems afterwards at the kitchen counter.  Berries are firm, so no worries about squishing as you pick, and they hold on the bush for a long time, so you can wait for the whole bush to ripen and pick all at once.  They are also not as plagued by birds as other berries, and are pest and disease free.  One of our favorites for edible landscaping.  Partial shade to full sun.  Self-fertile but may do better with a pollinator.  Zones 3-8. 

Good producer and a beautiful compact landscape bush. . North American native plant.
