    This mid to late variety produces blueberries the size of cherries, so holds the illustrious title for the world’s largest blueberry. The giant size has not affected the flavour though, as the fruits are delicious and they have a long ripening season, so you can pick them for around 6 weeks from early summer. This is a fast growing plant that has a slightly spreading habit.

  • 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.
