Ponca was Released in 2019 at the University of Arkansas. High-yielding thornless, erect canes with medium-sized fruit with enhanced sweetness and good post-harvest handling traits. Ponca is the sweetest cultivar released to date. A commercial cultivar with good potential as an early-market berry for shipping, local market production, and home garden use.
Berry Update First berries from Ponca are delicious, just as advertised. Sweet and consistent, the bush is quite vigorous and produced a nice sized first year crop. I highly recommend it. Thank you!
I am always happy to review quality products, and Ponca fits that standard. I received it a week ago in a box fit for fine china, let alone live plants. Such good packing that the packing peanuts were clean, no spilled dirt! Ponca is healthy and growing in it's new home. I expect it to do as well as all the other plants I have received from Berries Unlimited over the past two years! My little homestead berry patch is looking good, with only one fatality in almost 100 plants. This fatality was most likely due to the site location I chose. I have purchased cheaper plants, and lived to regret it. You get what you pay for. These are good, quality plants and I highly recommend this company.
