Duke Blueberry Bush is the leading early-ripening Northern Highbush variety. It is known for its high yields of uniformly-sized blueberries that are sweet and delicious.

 Maintaining the plant vigor of Duke can be a challenge over a long period of time but is well worth the effort. The attractive fruit is medium-to-large, light blue, and slightly tart. Berries are very firm and retain their quality better than most other varieties. 

 Bluecrop Blueberry is best grown in acidic (pH of 4.8 to 5.2), organically rich, medium-to-wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Shallow, fibrous roots need constant moisture and good drainage. Bluecrop Blueberry also appreciate a good organic mulch.

Although blueberries are self-fertile, cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop (larger berries and larger yields). Therefore, it is best to plant more than one variety that will bloom at the same time. 

Although often planted solely for the fruit crop, this versatile flowering shrub also has excellent ornamental value! These shrubs are very effective when planted in shrub borders or as part of less formal shrub plantings. Particularly effective in conjunction with rhododendrons and azaleas which share similar acidic soil requirements. Duke Blueberry Shrubs also make an excellent hedge with the added benefits of summer fruit, which can be harvested or left for the birds.
