Item #: Farthing Blueberry
Availability: Pick up only - May 2018
Farthing blueberry is a southern highbush cultivar, vigorous but not a tall-growing plant. It has the somewhat squat bush structure of ‘Windsor’, but with more branchiness. The plant makes numerous flower buds and flowers very heavily. Flowering is not as late as for ‘Star’ and ‘Windsor’ but later than for ‘Emerald’, ‘Jewel’, and ‘Millennia’.
The berries begin to ripen at about the same time as ‘Star’, ‘Windsor’, and ‘Emerald’. Because of the high crop load typical of ‘Farthing’, the harvest continues for 6 weeks, similar to ‘Emerald’. First harvest in near Gainesville, FL is around April 20th. ‘Farthing’ is partially self-incompatible and requires cross pollination for full fruit set. the size of fruit is medium to very large.
Chill hours 300, USDA Plant Zones 7-10-
