Although it takes a while for it to come to fruition, the bush can grow mostly on its own very with little work. However, it may be prudent to trim the thorns as it grows so that when it comes time to harvest the picker won’t have to plunge their arms into them. It can also make harvesting easier if the bush’s vines are trained to grow in an upward manner. Harvest time is usually between July and August.
