To All concerned,

New Rochelle was some place of repute in terms of fruit tree and berry nurseries during the mid nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.  Notably a few pear varieties and also the above Lawton Blackberry.

Thanks to my recent involvement with the Hudson Park Children’s Greenhouse [restoration] project the existence of ‘New Rochelle Heritage’ fruit varieties was brought to my attention.

This peaked my interest and I set out on a internet search tour to see if I could locate any of these plants. And I scored my first success with locating the Lawton Blackberry.

I would like to reintroduce this plant into New Rochelle and at the same time take the opportunity to be able to sell plants as a fundraiser for the above mentioned restoration project.

I am delighted to announce that I found up to 500 plants of the Lawton Blackberry.  The entire profit of the sales will be donated to the Hudson Park Children’s Greenhouse project.


  • 1-5 plants $16.50 each
  • 5 plants and over: $ 14.00 each

Payment accepted per check or PayPal.  The plant order will be place at the latest on 12 April.  That is the absolute deadline.  They will ship to New Rochelle and you will received details per email where to collect your order.
