Spartan Blueberry- 1 for $15 or 3 $40
Spartan Blueberry was introduced in 1977 by the USDA in Beltsville, Maryland. This beautiful, upright Northern Highbush variety produced huge, quarter-sized fruit twice the size of the average Blueberry of the time.
Spartan had a big appeal for both commercial growers and home gardeners. The most obvious benefit was the amazing large fruit size, followed by the excellent quality of the fruit. A firm texture also added a snap to the eating experience.
