|We now have blackberries that bare a lot of fruit but the berry is sour. I recently went to Arkansas ans sampled a berry that was sweet enough to eat off the vine. What can I get that will be this good?

|The cultivars that produce the largest, sweetest fruit are usually those that ripen later in the season. In your gardening zone you'll have good luck with "Shawnee" or "Chester". Both develop very large, very sweet fruit. Enjoy!
