‘Duke’ is a highbush blueberry cultivar that typically grows 5-7’ tall. It flowers late but fruits early, often producing an abundant crop of blueberries. Waxy, bell-shaped, white flowers appear in May. Flowers are followed by medium to large, light blue blueberries which ripen in early season (early to mid June). Berries have a mildly sweet flavor. Dark green leaves turn attractive shades of yellow and orange in fall.
