This superb mid season variety is without doubt the leading commercial blueberry to date. Vigorous upright growth reaching 4-6ft at maturity but can be kept compact by growing in a container. The high quality fruit has a good rich flavour and is borne in medium-large open clusters for easy picking. The firm berries are light blue in colour and are ideal for all purposes. Stunning bronze foliage in the autumn followed by attractive red stems in winter. Frost tolerant.
Eventual height: 2m (6½ft). Eventual spread: 1½m (5ft). Cropping season: late July. Self fertile, but cross pollination will encourage a greater yield.
This product is supplied in a 3L pot.
*Bareroot – November to March is the ideal time to plant bare-root plants. These are plants that have been grown in open ground, then dug up for dispatch and planting during the dormant season. They are called ‘bare-root’ plants as they are supplied with no soil around their roots. They will come packed in damp compost to stop the roots drying out and should be planted as soon as possible. As long as the compost is kept damp planting can be delayed for a few weeks if necessary.
