Why plant Darrow Highbush Blueberry?
A superfruit with super flavor! Darrow Highbush Blueberry is a selection loved for its large, juicy, wonderfully flavorful, sweet-tart fruit. This is guilt-free snacking at its finest. Low-calorie, high-fiber, and packed with anti-cancer antioxidants, Darrow blueberries not only satisfy your cravings for a treat, but contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

When the kids say, “We’re hungry,” you can just send them outside for a snack you will all feel good about. Yum!
So many of the plants we grow for food come from distant places. The Highbush Blueberry is a homegrown American native. It grows in the wild from Maine all the way to Florida, ranging westward to Minnesota and Louisiana. Over the years, plant breeders have worked to improve the size, flavor, and quantity of its berries. Darrow was named after Bill Darrow of Green Mountain Orchards in Vermont. It stands out for its hardiness, vigorous growth, upright habit, and fine flavor. It was introduced in 1965.
How to use Darrow Highbush Blueberry in the landscape?
Take the time to appreciate Darrow Highbush Blueberry’s exquisite flowers in the spring. The dainty pink-tinged white blossoms, shaped like tiny, upside-down urns, make a pleasing show. You’ll also enjoy the flaming red color that Darrow’s foliage takes on in the fall. A delightful Accent with or without fruit!

How To Plant Darrow Highbush Blueberry
Acid soil is key to growing Blueberries successfully. These peat-loving Accents require very low–pH conditions in order to thrive. If your soil isn’t naturally acidic, you may want to grow Darrow Blueberry in a large container or raised bed. Give it all-day sun if possible and use lots of organic matter—both as a soil amendment and as mulch. Water weekly if no rain falls. Darrow Blueberry is self-pollinating, but you’ll get bigger fruits and more of them if you plant another variety of Highbush Blueberry nearby so they can pollinate each other.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
