Garden Talk
Listen to why this is Niles' favorite.
  • Sweet, rich blueberry taste
  • Crisp texture that gets better with refrigeration
  • Excellent yields
  • Vigorous, hardy plants
  • Grows 4-6 ft. tall with glossy green foliage
Ka-Bluey is the most delicious blueberry we've ever encountered – try it once and you won't ever want to eat any other blueberry! The medium-sized, bluish-purple berries have a rich blueberry flavor with hints of peach, strawberry and raspberry. They're exceptionally crisp and the texture gets even better with refrigeration! Ka-Bluey blueberries are great for fresh eating and their super-sweet taste means you won't need to add sugar when including the berries in your favorite recipes. The attractive shrubs are vigorous and hardy, standing 4-6 ft. tall when mature and have glossy, green foliage that turns red in the fall. Established plants are virtually carefree, with no significant pest or disease problems. Ka-Bluey is a self-pollinating variety that produces heavy yields in July. Zones 4-8.
