Columbia Giant Thornless Blackberry
The Columbia Giant Thornless Blackberry is easily the largest blackberry we’ve ever seen! And it tastes amazing too. Columbia Giant is a result of the hard work of Dr. Chad Finn in Corvallis, Oregon. Columbia Giant produces thornless and vigorous trailing vines with fruits that are firm and easy to harvest with a conical shape and a pleasantly sweet flavor and just enough tartness to make it a very well balanced fruit.
