I would give this one more than five stars if I could. Lidia recommended it, and boy was she right. This blackberry was the surprise hit of the whole patch. A vigorous, manageable bush, half the size of Big Daddy, and three times the amount of berries, and Big Daddy produced very, very well. The bush is absolutely red when the berries are unripe. But the flavor is the shocker. So sweet, more so than any of the others, even Ponca. This may be due to growing conditions in my area.
I will be planting more of this variety.
Thank you, very delicious!
I received a healthy, happy plant. No problems. Planted it early this spring, and never had any issues. None. It's probably the most care free plant I have, with the exception of the honeyberries. So I forget about it until I do my garden check, and I realized that I keep stopping at it to check the tag for a name because of how perfectly it is growing. I am waiting for berries and will post an update. This is a nice variety.
