Early, blueberry-like fruit. In spring, small, white, lightly fragrant flowers appear and give way to sweet and tasty fruit that ripens two weeks earlier than strawberries. Fruit is large and deep-blue in color, perfect for fresh eating and making delicious jam. Flavor is comparable to sweet, wild blueberries with a tangy hint of currant. Plants thrive in northern gardens where blueberries may have trouble. Cold-hardy. Ripens late May, early June. Best pollinator: Berry Blue™.
