This old, reliable variety has medium-sized berries that ripen in late season and are superb for baking. Easy-to-grow, vigorous plants make wonderful upright hedges, growing to 6-8 feet high. Foliage turns flaming orange in the fall.
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.
