Apache blackberries at murray family farms.jpg

Apaches are a lovely blackberry, kind enough to have no thorns and plump and juicy! Apaches add a TON of flavor to anything made with them, as they have tons of juice. These blackberries are two-bite berries!

Arapaho blackberries are another family friendly berry, with no thorns, perfect for U-Pick! This variety shows up a bit earlier to the season than other breeds. They also have a large fruiting row, which means tons to choose from during picking!

Variety: Chester





Chester Blackberries tend to grow big and wildly, but consistently make delicious plump fruits. The more ripened they are, the easier they are to pick, so keep an eye out for very dark shiny flesh, with full bulbs!

Variety: Silvan




The silvan is the union between the Marionberry and the Boysenberry, and its classification as a standard blackberry keeps most people from experiencing the tender juicieiness of a blackberry married with the spectacular Marionberry flavor.

The Triple Crown Blackberry is a triple threat! Fantastic flavor, Big bunches of berries, and firm texture. This variety is by far and away, one of the most popular varieties here at Murray Family Farms.

Variety: Siskiyou




Siskiyou Blackberries are like a very hearty Ollalieberry! For applications like breads, savory stuffings or just picking and tasting, the Siskiyous have a much firmer texture and can take being buried at the bottom of a U-pick basket like a champ!
