Healthy Rubel Blueberry

Has the highest antioxidant level of any blueberry. Small, dark blueberries are perfect for pies, muffins and pancakes, but are too delicious to pass up fresh. You can't find flavor like this in the grocery! Strong 4- to 6-ft. bush is cold hardy and a consistent provider. Foliage turns bright fire red in the fall. Matures in early August. Zones 3-7.
