Blueberry 'Darrow' Rubus Vaccinium corymbosum
A vigorous erect variety, late season, ripening mid-late August. Produces good crops of very large berries that are firm and light-blue in colour. The fruit is one of the largest produced by any blueberry cultivar.
Excellent tart flavour. Darrow is a consistent high yielder when pollinated with other varieties & is fully hardy. The long bell-shaped spring flowers are white with a tint of pink & are produced in large clusters - three quarters of which will produce fruit. Leaves turn stunning shades of orange in autumn.

Grow against a fence or wall for support in well-drained but moist, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade.
When planting ensure the root ball is moist before planting. Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root ball or pot. Mix soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until established. Fruit is produced on the previous year's stems. Tie in the new shoot - these will flower and fruit in the second year. Cut away the older stems and replace them with new vigorous shoots. Cut back damaged shoots in late winter and apply a general fertiliser.
