Sweetheart Highbush Organic Blueberry Plant
Sweetheart was released in 2010 by the USDA/ARS, and is another addition to a cadre of great, early-ripening blueberries. Berries are medium to large in size, similar to Hannah’s Choice, and slightly firmer. Flavor of the berry is very sweet and aromatic when picked ripe. The blooms are frost resistant (similar to other early season highbush blueberries I’ve observed on our farm). Shape of the bush is tall and well-filled, good leaf cover during summer growing season. Fall colors are burgundy red to red, making an attractive plant in any location. Production of fruit per plant is in the high end range, seeing between 9-11# of fruit per bush at maturity. Berries are great fresh or frozen…if any make it past your kitchen to your freezer!
USDA Hardiness zones 5-8
