Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Marionberry Blackberry is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Description

Rubus

What's a marionberry? A lovely blackberry/raspberry hybrid developed in Marion County, Oregon. The deep purple-black fruit is deeply flavored and abundant. Which is great because you'll want to use it to make lots of jams, jellies, ice cream toppings, pies and other baked goods. Or just pop 'em in your mouth and enjoy the sweet berries fresh. The seeds are small and the taste is big. The berries are larger, sweeter and juicier than other blackberries.
