Prime Ark Horizon Blackberry Bundles


SKU: N/A Category:


‘Prime-Ark® Horizon’, is a new primocane-fruiting, thornless blackberry.  Berries are large and firm, with high yields and great flavor. ‘Primocane’ simply means it can produce two crops per year; the first in June and the 2nd in August-September.

In Arkansas, the floricane (overwintered cane) crop first harvest date is June 12,  near that of Ouachita.  Primocane (new canes) first harvest date is August 4.  No orange rust nor anthracnose was observed on Prime-Ark® Horizon. Winter hardiness has been comparable to Ouachita, and has shown very limited winter injury to a low of 1F. Chilling requirement is unknown, but is anticipated to be approximately 300 hours
