First to ripen and early to bloom, this upright bush produces solid canes with bright red wood. Berries are light blue, large in size and sweet and juicy. Fall foliage is red-burgundy blooming in white during the spring. We recommend to plant where blueberries are well suited to avoid frost pockets. Northern highbush blueberries require 800 to 1000 chill hours to set fruit.
Plant blueberry plants in a sunny to partially shaded area, in a well-drained, very acidic soil, with a pH of 4.2-5.2. Plant at least two different varieties for cross pollination. Set blueberry plants 4-8 feet apart (3 feet apart for hedges).
As fruit ripens, cover blueberry plants with netting to deter birds. Pick fruit promptly to discourage insects.
