Product information "Blackberry Navaho® The Big Easy®"

Navaho® The Big Easy is a worthy successor to the original Navaho®. Like the original mother of the Navaho® blackberry family, it has a strong, upright habit. In general, the large leaves and also the large flowers of this variety stand out. The black, elongated, cone-like fruits are again about 30-50% larger than Navaho® Bigandearly® and they are also much larger than the original Navaho®.
But can such a large, black fruit even be tasty? In any case, the negative association that "large = inferior flavour" does not apply here: like the other Navaho varieties The Big Easy tastes great: it must of course be harvested ripe, and then it has a balanced ratio of sweetness and sourness and also a fine blackberry flavour, which is a little more perfumed and conspicuous than, for example, the old standard variety Loch Ness.

Short description of Blackberry Navaho® The Big Easy®

Medium maturity, starts a little later than Bigandearly® and the harvest does not last as long as Summerlong®.
Huge, elongated, relatively large individual fruits. Despite the size, the entire fruit and the calyx are very pleasant to eat, they almost melt on the tongue.
Has an intense blackberry aroma, slightly perfumed, with enough sugar.

blackberry sweetness (Liliya Makarenko)

Hello, what is the sweetest thorn less blackberry variety?

Jun 10, 2020

Brix! (John)

It all depends on brix ratio of sugar to acid in fruit. All depends on you. Some prefer slightly acidic, myself included. Navaho has a higher brix than most, and higher than the ideal 10% blackberry breeders aim for. Blackberry Hull is quite sweet compared to most and sweeter than Chester thornless which is a fine tasting berry too. Triple Crown is good when ripe, but blackberry fruits have to be near overripe to get a high brix, otherwise acidic if picked under ripe.

Navaho Big and Early is a juicy, fruity sweet with large berries above 5g. Thornless Evergreen with a brix of 13% can be very sweet, but it has smaller berries of about 5g in size. If you want sweet I would go for Thornless Evergreen aka Oregon Thorless as it has a spicy sweetness like wild blackberries, but it is prone to grey mould after rain. Navahos being firm are not! Big and early is fine choice too!

Ripening?? (Warren)

Hi How much later does it start to ripen than Bigandearly? Bigandearly can ripen from mid to late July in the uk depending on weather. Thanks.

Ripening?? (Lubera)

Big Easy begins to ripe about 10 – 14 days later as BigandEarly.

Concentrated Ripening? (Bob)

How's this plant for concentrated ripening? The bigger the berry will take time to ripen and if you have a lot in late August they might not ripen when bad weather hits? My Bigandearly plant sometimes has fruit not ripening late season in my climate.

Concentrated Ripening! (Dave)

Get Navaho Summerlong as it has it the most concentrated season in UK conditions, ripening from mid July and usually finished by end of Aug or 1stvweek in Sept. Large fruiting types can take a long time to ripen if you don't get the good weather!

Flower Colour? (Ron)

Hi, just a few questions: does this plant have pink flowers like Bigandearly and is it cross with Loch Ness BlackBerry like the others? Thanks.

The BigEasy plant? (Will)

Looks a nice plant, but I'd like to hear first from people who have grown it in the UK or Europe before I take the plunge as it's new and untested here. BigandEarly is the best for the UK without a doubt and is now quite widely available. Even Lubera recommend this one for early picking, but it always striving to give customers better plants so this BigEasy plant must be good too to stagger the fruiting season.
