I planted a 'natchez' last year, did very little to help it along and it grew well and produced quite a few berries. It did very well considering how little care it received.

I planted 33 feet of Natchez and 33 feet of Ouachita 2 years ago and while they grew great and produced lots of fruit and still are producing now for about 2 months the fruit was very bland. I had a short row of Kiowa and those berries are VERY good but the plants are thorny.
