A vigorous erect variety, late season, ripening mid-late August. Produces good crops of very large berries that are firm and light-blue in colour. The fruit is one of the largest produced by any blueberry cultivar. Excellent tart flavour. Darrow is a consistent high yielder when pollinated with other varieties & is fully hardy. The long bell-shaped spring flowers are white with a tint of pink & are produced in large clusters – three quarters of which will produce fruit. Leaves turn stunning shades of orange in autumn.
Eventual height and spread: 1.8m (6ft). Cropping season: Mid/late August. 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.
