A late season highbush cultivar with large light blue berries with an exceptional flavour. It is the perfect cultivar if you want to extend your blueberry harvest by an extra month. The fruits are produced in abundance on an upright bush and are followed by white sometimes pink tinged flowers. It is fully hardy but will still do really well in warmer areas.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Blueberries can also be grown in large pots and containers if ericaceous compost is used. Prune in winter cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring feed with sulphate of ammonia sulphate of potash and bonemeal and top-dress with ericaceous compost.
