Hardy from north to south, and needs no pollinator!

First big crop is in May or June, second at summer's end!
It's the only one of its kind in the world! A blueberry that sets 2 crops instead of just 1 has long been a dream of many gardeners, and now Sweetheart has made it come true . . . deliciously!

Sweetheart is technically a Northern Highbush, but it thrives from north to south, needing no pollinator to set up to 15 pounds of berries a year. (Yes, you read that correctly!) The first crop is in late spring or early summer. The second is at summer's end. You won't believe the yields -- plump, firm, delicious berries with a very sweet bite.

And you don't need to do anything special to get Sweetheart to work its re-fruiting magic. It's just as easy to grow as any other Blueberry, thriving in full sun in cool northern climates, afternoon or partial shade farther south and west. If you have other Blueberry varieties growing in the garden, no problem -- Sweetheart will actually probably set even more berries if planted near other varieties. It is quite cold-hardy, thriving with 750 to 800 chill hours.

Sweetheart is the result of breeding work at Duke University from Dr. Mark Ehlenfeldt, and we are delighted to be able to offer it to you this season. Expect the shrub to reach 5 to 6 feet high and about 3 to 4 feet wide, with white blooms in spring before the masses of frosty blue berries. Eat them fresh from the garden or turn them into jams, jellies, pies, and sauces!

Certain to sell out quickly, Sweetheart is a must-have for the berry lover. Reserve yours today! Zones 4-8.

How many years before fruiting plants bear their first crop?

For fruiting plants such as blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, fig, honeyberry, cranberry, and grape, it takes 2 years to bear the first crop. That does not mean you may not get some fruit before then. Depending on the size and maturity of the plant shipped, you may get at least a few pieces of fruit or a small quantity produced the first year. But, by the second year, you should have your first real crop of fruit to enjoy and fruit production will increase every year thereafter.
