Description

Adaptable to a wide range of northern climates and soil types, Reka produces early-ripening, medium-sized berries with an exceptionally rich flavour and pleasing aroma. Surprisingly high yields and beautiful burgundy red fall colour on this 4 -6 ft. bush makes Reka a must-have for every blueberry lover. Dark blue fruits ripen about the same time as Duke, but the berries have better flavour. Developed in New Zealand, Reka is a Northern Highbush variety that grows best in temperate climates where total winter chilling is 1,000 hours or more. Its fruits are excellent for fresh eating and processing. Vigorous and fast growing, Reka Blueberry is also a good choice for local farm markets and u-pick markets. May require support wires due to heavy yields!

#1 potted.
