This is a deciduous, mid-season fruiting blueberry producing large, dark blue berries that often form in clusters, like grapes. One of the more resilient blueberries it’s suitable for a large garden. Plant more than one plant to help with pollination and to increase fruit production. It prefers a sunny to part-shade position with moist, well- drained, acidic soil. Blueberries can be eaten straight from the bush, frozen, used in cakes and muffins or made into jam.
