Herbert Blueberry is one of the finest cultivated blueberries. Developed in 1932, introduced in 1953. Cold-hardy. It is a old time classic variety that's seeing new resurgence due to its flavor. Nearly one-inch fruit is perfectly sweet with a tart blueberry zing - great dessert quality for high sugar content. Fruit holds well and grows in large, light blue clusters on easy-to-pick branch tips. Late-blooming to avoid frost zaps. Ripens in early August. Self-pollinating, but will yield larger crops if pollinated with another blueberry variety. Leaves are an attractive shade of red in the fall. These come from Bascom Road Blueberry Farm in Newport, NH!
