Vaccinium corymbosum 'Duke'

Duke blueberries are one of the best early ripening Northern Highbush varieties, famous for its heavy yields of uniform-sized, quality fruit. Duke’s mild flavor seems to improve with cold storage, growing sweeter with time. A rugged and hardy survivor, whose flowers laugh at late spring frosts, it can be semi-evergreen in milder winter regions.

This solid early season producer requires 900+ chill hours to reliably bloom and set fruit. Prefers regularly moist, acidic soils. Maintaining the plant vigor of Duke blueberries can be a challenge over a long period of time, so regular pruning and extra fertility will help.

Great Berry

This is absolutely one of my favorites. Great flavor, always producing, and earlier then most. For the home gardener, I can't give a higher recommendation. Recommend planting with other varieties. I have two in a patch with 6 other early to late varieties (Olympia, B.Crop, Jersey, Chandler, Darrow, & Patriot) . The patch provides berries from mid-june to mid-august.
