Dark Star in 2015 had four flowers fail to produce fruit earlier in the year. Later Dark Star variety finally came through in the summer. 100% of the flowers set fruit in it’s last flower cycle ending in early July. The fruit was harvested today (early August) producing of over 11 pounds of purple fleshed juicy fruit. In addition to this, the fruit had a wonderful flavor and very nice sweetness. Several test were performed with a refractometer  having a Brix score ranging from 18.5 to 19.5. I then tested the largest fruit weighing in at 1.5 pounds and it had a Brix score of 20. I was very pleased to see these results. This plant is five (5) years old and has been producing fruit for the last three (3) years.
