Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Duke Blueberry is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Planting & Care

Blueberries need well-drained, rich, acid soil. Plant with an acid-type compost such as one formulated for Azaleas/ Camellias/Rhododendrons mixed with your native soil. Amend with an acid fertilizer, sulfur or aluminum sulfate according to label instructions. Never use animal manures with acid plants. Blueberries need full sun, but afternoon shade in very hot (over 100°) climates. Keep the soil moist but not water-logged during the growing season. Mulch around plants to protect shallow roots from drying out. Northern Highbush varieties are cold-tolerant and well-suited to cooler climates.
