Blueberry - Duke

Vaccinium corymbosum 'Duke'

In stock (29 items available)

This self-pollinating northern highbush blueberry blooms late, but ripens in early summer.  It's widely considered the best variety available for harvesting in the early season.  The firm blueberries have a tangy-sweet flavor and are rich in antioxidants.  The berries from the Duke variety retain freshness better than many other others.  As an added benefit, the beautiful red fall color will add interest to your fall landscape.  This easy to care for plant is a fine choice for the beginner.

Grow the Duke variety along with our Bluecrop and Jersey Blueberry varieties and you'll be enjoying delicious blueberries all summer long!

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!

    Yes, you can grow the Blueberry bushes with another species alternated in between. Please remember that while blueberry bushes will fruit with just one plant, you will have much higher yields when 2 or more of the same variety are planted within 100' of each other!

    What pot size do I need for full grown plants?

    Thank you for asking about our Duke Blueberry! To begin, we always recommend that customers plant directly into the soil. This is due to the extra care required for potted plants, and the fact we only warranty plants which are planted directly into the ground. However, if you are going to pot a Blueberry bush, you would want to use a pot that is 12-18" deep. Start with a pot which has a diameter of 14" to 16". There is a chance you will need to re-pot the blueberry bush into a wider container once it grows larger.
