VACCINIUM corymbosum BLUEBERRY Duke
Duke is the most widely planted early ripening northern variety, a vigorous and highly productive variety with a bushy upright growth and attractive oval shaped leaves. Heavy, consistent yield with an attractive, light blue, high quality berry. The fruit is firm and has a good crunch when eaten fresh and freezes well. Duke blooms late but ripens early which protects the blossoms from spring frosts. Branches may droop to the ground when laden with fruit and require the use a simple trellis as support. Stunning red/gold foliage in the autumn. Plant in an open sunny spot in a moist acid, but well-drained soil. Can also be successfully grown in pots with ericaceous compost.

- Eventual height & spread: 2m x 1m
- Crops: late June/July
