  • Comments: A new variety introduced in 1999. It produces higher yielding and larger fruit than other Arkansas thornless, erect varieties. It is also a more vigorous and healthy variety than others currently available, so has much to recommend it. All Arkansas upright berries should be tipped at 42 inches to encourage to fruit lateral and avoid the need for support. RESTRICTED STATES, AE, AK, GU, HI, MA, PR.
