Description

Early season variety that ripens quickly. Bushy, upright, deciduous shrub with creamy-white blooms that give way to  branch bending amounts of medium to large light blue berries that have the perfect sweet to tangy ratio. Fruit maintains firmness and is excellent fresh, frozen, or cooked in jams and desserts. Attractive to pollinators. Beautiful yellow and orange fall foliage adds excellent ornamental value. Height 5-7′.

Blueberries require medium to wet, well-drained, acidic soil (4.5 – 5.5) rich in organic material. Even though highbush blueberries are self-fertile and will fruit on their own, they will produce larger and more plentiful crops with other cultivars that bloom at the same time are present to cross-pollinate.
