Blackberry (Marion) 'Marion'

Marionberry
Rosaceae
Edible fruit, Perennials

Developed by a USDA cross of   Chehalem  x  Olallie  berries, this is a trailing, midseason berry whose rich, flavorful fruit sets the standard. Thorny canes can grow 10 ft. in a season, but are commonly controlled by pruning and trellising. Roots are perennial, but canes are biennial: they grow to full length the first season. The second season they bear clusters of white flowers followed by fruit.

 Marion  types include  Black Diamond , a thornless variety; late-ripening  Waldo , with berries that maintain their shape when cooked; and  Black Butte ,  Silvan , and  Siskiyou , all early ripeners with excellent flavor.
