Duke Blueberry

Huge Berries Are a Family Favorite!


Plucked from a vigorous, hardy highbush plant, Duke's amazingly large berries are the size of quarters! And oh, so delicious, your family will eat them up faster than you can harvest. They make quite an impression in fresh salads and desserts, too. Mild and sweet, the fruit ripens early and retains its firm, fresh taste and texture longer than most others of its kind. Very heavy yields produce up to 20 pounds of these huge berries, once the plant is established. Grows 4-6 ft. tall with a similar spread. Self-pollinating. Zones 4-7.
  • Zone 4-7
  • Height 4-6 ft
  • Germination 7-10 days
  • Light Required Full Sun.
