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.

(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).
