Fruit didn't develop

Blackberry    None Given

My blackberries never fully developed, they blossomed, and then didn't produce a fully developed berry. The plant looks healthy, and some berries have started forming on a nearby plant. Does anyone have any ideas as to why my blackberry plant failed to produce fruit after blooming?
