Although wild blackberries bear fruit in many parts of Minnesota, no cultivated varieties are reliably hardy here. Some can be grown here with winter protection (the canes must be buried or otherwise covered). If you try this, be sure to select a trailing variety. Black Satin is thornless and works well for this purpose. As a rule, blackberries bear fruit only on canes in their second growing season and since most first year canes (primocanes) die over winter in Minnesota, crops usually fail. These websites give our other recommendations: 1. Hardy kiwi: http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/fruit/growing-hardy-kiwifruit/ 2. Thornless raspberries: http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/fruit/raspberries-for-the-home-garden/index.html
