Chehalem blacberry plants

Asked August 17, 2015, 6:15 PM EDT

While working at a cannery in the 1960's I came across the Chehalem BlackBerry which tasted like the ground trailing small wild blackberries found in the woods. I would like to find plants for this berry. I live in the Oregon City area.thanks for your help.

Chehalem has come and gone. It has been used in a lot of blackberry crosses.

No Oregon or Washington nurseries could be found that carry this variety.

However, the National Germplasm Repository in Corvallis, Oregon has this blackberry and you can get cuttings from them.
