Are blackberries easy to grow?


I want to replace our grape vines with blackberries. I think we would use the berries more. the grapes have been here since I moved here and we just never find a use for all of them. I'd rather have something we would use. Are blackberries or possibly raspberries difficult to grow?

    I could never get them to grow for me in Southern CA, just too dry + hot. I tried a number of varieties. When I did get vines to grow they didn't bear much fruit.

    The same with raspberries for me.

    Easy. Shallow roots requiring regular watering. Can spread. Choose thornless. We like Navajo Thornless. They freeze well, too.
