Vaccinium corymbosum 'Bluecrop'
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. Maintaining the plant vigor of Duke blueberries can be a challenge over a long period of time.
This solid early season producer requires 800+ chill hours to reliably bloom and set fruit. Prefers regularly moist, acidic soils.
