Vaccinium corymbosum 'Reka'
Spectacular burgundy color arrives in the fall after bountiful crops of early, medium-size, flavor-packed blueberries on this vigorous, fast-growing variety. Developed in New Zealand, it adapts well to a wide range of northern climates and soil types (as long as the ph is low) and will add both beauty and fabulous food to your landscape. Wonderful flavor fresh or frozen.
Widely adapted and more tolerant of heavy and wet soils than many other varieties. Prefers 800-1000 chill hours to develop its full fruiting potential, which is considerable.
