Prolific, Early-Ripening Blueberry

Duke Blueberry is a northern highbush blueberry that produces exceptional fruit. It's such a prolific producer that the branches often droop, so planting one where you have a trellis would work well. These also make a decorative hedge that can't be beat!

Blueberries are considered a beautiful, productive plant with spring flowering against dark green foliage, delicious fruit in summer and fiery orange/red foliage for autumn color...and Duke is no exception.

Your Duke Blueberry produces blooms late but ripens early, protecting blossoms from late frosts. The spring flowers arrive white with a pink hue. The delicate, bell-shape blossoms present an elegant contrast against the green, leathery foliage. Yellow-orange leaves in autumn round out the ornamental nature of this remarkable blueberry bush.

Duke Blueberry is a heavy, consistent producer you can count on to provide you with delicious fruit every year. The medium to large berries are very firm and retain their fresh quality longer than other varieties, so you can easily store some or share a few with friends and neighbors. Duke is particularly renown for its superb berry with a mildly tart flavor.

Your Duke Blueberry has an upright growth habit, and is stem blight as well as deer resistant. Plant your Duke Blueberry in a full sun location in your yard where there are acid soils for best performance.

Blueberries are extremely nutritious and have a high vitamin content. So planting a blueberry bush is an investment in not only beauty, but health as well. Duke Blueberry is a great bush to start with for a hardy, easy-to-care-for plant that can be counted on for great performance.
