The Duke Blueberries forms an upright bush between 4 and 6 feet tall and wide. It is very decorative, with pretty, white flowers in spring and bright orange and yellow fall colors. That is even before we get to the berries, which are exceptionally large, a light and bright blue, with a sweet flavor and a unique ‘crisp’ bite when raw. This plant is so pretty you can grow it among your flowering shrubs, or in a dedicated food-growing area of your garden. It produces an early crop from late May to early July, depending on your region, and this northern highbush variety is an ideal choice for colder zones.
- Mature size is 5-6 ft tall/4 ft wide
- Hardy in zones 4-7

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
