Blueberry - Duke (Northern Highbush) #5 Pot
Duke blueberry is a heavy, consistent producer with an attractive, firm, light blue high quality berry. The berries are large. Duke blooms late but ripens early, which protects the blossoms from spring frosts. You can plant Duke Blueberry with Jersey Blueberry which is a cold hardy blueberry that produces a late season crop. Branches may droop to the ground when laden with fruit, prompting many gardeners to use a simple trellis as support. This bush tolerates a wide range of soil types, and the small to medium sized, sweet tasting fruit is a favorite for baking. Striking flame orange fall foliage color. Duke blueberries require at least 800 chill hours. They are self fertile but will produce better crops if planted with other highbush varieties.
USDA ZONES: Zone 4, Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7
