Makes huge berries. Lots of thorns! Handles Hot and Humid TX Zone 9a in Full Sun (SW of Houston, TX). Must be low chill, as it fruits every year.

Planted three of this this spring. So far I love them. I hope they survive the winter here in Omaha. Absolutely huge berries and lots of them this first season.
