Earliblue complements Chandler as it starts fruiting at the beginning of July, so adding four weeks of picking in your bed of blueberry plants. The berries are large, quite a light blue and sweet and Earliblue makes harvesting easy as the fruit are carried in good sized clusters. Like any blueberry, not only do the berries taste good, but they are jam packed with anti-oxidants and anti-cancer agents.

Remember that all blueberries need moist, free-draining acidic soil to fruit. They are members of the heather family and so need ericaceous soil conditions. Take a look at our Guide to Growing Blueberry Plants. Blueberries do very well in pots, tubs and other containers.
