An excellent eating variety for the subtropics with very low chilling requirements. Cropping extends from July through to October. Self pollinating. A delight for children this blueberry bears regularly and has large sized fruit.

Very good flavour. If allowed to fully ripen, they become more sweet but less flavoursome. Grows to about 1m high . Recommended.

Was growing really well. I had heaps of fruit in the first year.Then I dropped a piece of wood on it and broke it at the base. Woops

This is supposed to be a good backyard variety and will cross pollinate with the other varieties I already have planted.
