Ponca Blackberry – Bundles


SKU: N/A Category:


Brand new PREMIUM variety! Looking for the very best blackberry flavor going? ‘Ponca’ is the sweetest cultivar from the Arkansas program, having achieved “the pinnacle of flavor” according to AU.

Sweet flavor has been retained in rainy conditions also and has been consistent from harvest to harvest. Not only the flavor but the yield potential is high and plants demonstrate excellent health. ‘Ponca’ has demonstrated good secondary bud crop potential following cold injury – meaning, if the first blooms get fried by cold, it will BLOOM AGAIN and set another crop. This is an EXCELLENT quality in this era of erratic spring frosts and climate change. Long picking season on this one. This cultivar ripens early, similar to ‘Natchez’, providing diversification in early season cultivar choice. ‘Ponca’ is a commercial cultivar with good potential for shipping, and is an exceptional choice for local-market production and home gardens. Soluble solids (brix) has exceeded 13% in some harvests and consistently exceeds 10%. Berries have reduced acidity, consistently below 1%. Check this one out!!! Pronounced “Ponk-Uh”.
