Vaccinium corymbosum Spartan

Spartan Highbush Blueberry

If you want to start your Blueberry picking early, 'Spartan' is the selection for you. It is one of the earliest ripeners throughout the Blueberry world with big bunches of quarter sized, light blue Blueberries that you'll be picking and eating straight from the bush in early July. 'Spartan' isn't just an early selection to whet your appetite for tastier, more productive varieties that mature later. It is a heavy producer with great taste and holds its own with those later, more well known selctions. 'Spartan' is also as good a landscape plant as it is a fruiter with a compact, well kept form, deep green, glossy foliage, wonderful, lightly scented white, bell shaped May bloom and outstanding orange to scarlet fall foliage color. Easy to grow and a fruiting masterpiece, 'Spartan' is a perfect edible landscape addition!
