A Northwest original! Introduced in 1933 by renowned local grower Joseph Eberhardt, this heritage variety boasts medium-large berries with superior, rich blueberry flavor. Ripens dependable crops in late-midseason.
This spreading, upright variety prefers milder winter locations, needs 800+ chill hours, and responds well to pruning to keep it upright and vigorous. REQUIRES another blueberry for pollination - one of the few varieties that is not at least partially self-fertile.
