Variety description

Duke' is an English nobility title and means something like "duke". It's pretty clear why this cultivated blueberry variety was "ennobled": 'Duke' is by far the hardiest highbush cultivated blueberry, it is said to withstand temperatures down to -34° C and even late frosts during flowering are surprisingly good. This trait allows blueberries to be grown at high altitudes, and not only that, but even in tub culture! Apart from that, 'Duke' behaves like all other cultivated blueberries. It grows vigorously upright, is deciduous and reaches heights of 120 - 150 cm. Perhaps the name also comes from another characteristic: 'Duke' has a very early ripening time, in normal locations the berries begin to ripen as early as the first half of July. This makes it one of the first ripe blueberries to be picked in the garden year.
