Duke Blueberry

Description
Blueberry lovers will have plenty to work with on this plant. Once mature, it'll produce up to 20 lbs of huge berries. They have a mild, sweet flavor and stay fresh for longer than most other blueberry varieties. A delectable choice for eating fresh and cooking in desserts. The plant is ornamentally useful as well, producing little white blooms in mid to late spring, over deep green foliage. Self–pollinating. Duke Blueberry ships now, garden–ready in a gallon–sized pot.
