Hardiness Of Hybrid Berries

How much cold will Phenomenal, Himalaya and Mammoth blackberries stand

in winter? Is it safe to plant where the temperature goes below 32


These berries are hardy to zero at least, for they are grown in northern

parts of this coast where they get such a touch once in a while. They

have also endured low temperatures in the central continental plateau

States and eastward. Whether they can endure the lowest temperatures of

the winter-killing regions of the northern border cannot be determined

in California, for we do not have the conditions for such tests. The

berries are very hardy while dormant, and probably their value in colder

regions would depend rather more upon their disposition to remain

dormant than upon what they can endure when in that condition.
