The berries, which grow in loose clusters, tend to be more tender than firm, but resist cracking.
The flavour is a balance of sweetness and tartness, and is rated good; the berries are also aromatic.
Herbert Blueberries don’t ship particularly well, so you’ll see them fresh mostly in local markets. Other than that, they are good for pick your own, for home gardeners, and for processing.
The bush is open and spreading, growing 6 to 8 feet (1.8 to 2.4 metres) tall, and the same wide. It should be kept pruned down to 6 feet (1.8 metres.)
It produces white blossoms in the spring.
Birds are particularly fond of Herbert Blueberries.
