Duke Blueberry PlantsDuke

One of the heaviest most consistent Producers

Early, medium to large light blue berries with a mildly sweet flavour.  This attractive berry is quite firm and retains its fresh quality longer than most varieties.  Duke blossoms late but ripens early, which protects blossoms from spring frosts.  It is one of the heaviest, most consistent producers, often yielding over 9kg per bush when mature.  Duke bushes are upright growers but the branches will droop to the ground when laden with fruit.  The foliage turns yellow-orange in the autumn.

Height 1.5 - 2m when mature.
