Honey Creek Highbush Organic Blueberry Plant
(previously known as Blue Moon)
2 gallon size potted plant
Honey Creek is a full, vigorous shrub reaching 5-6’ in height. It has been our number one selling blueberry cultivar since we went into business. Honey Creek’s fruit is large and light blue, and the flavor is excellent. The berries have a dry picking scar, and are great fresh or frozen. Yield has been very dependable on our mature bushes. Honey Creek is a concentrated producer, and all fruit can be picked in a two week period. Honey Creek has been the number one choice for best flavor at our family’s Fourth of July picnic for many years running (Elizabeth and Bonus push a close second). A mature plant will yield 10-12# of fruit. Most years, Honey Creek ripens just prior to Blue Gold, mid to late June; but some years ripens in early July here in Brown County, Indiana.
USDA hardiness Zones 4a-7b
(Blue Moon is now a patented name for a southern highbush type blueberry developed in Australia in 2010, with patent rights in the USA. To avoid appointments with surly lawyers, I’ve renamed our long-loved producer after a beautiful creek on our farm, where my kids have spent much time playing…when they weren’t eating the blueberries growing nearby! Blue Moon was originally thought to be a sport of Toro. It turned out to be an accidental seedling that came in with a batch of Toro plants I brought in 19 years ago to start our plantings).
