Draper blueberries

Pictured above is the Draper variety of blueberry. Years of plant breeding starting with the Duke variety have led to this new cultivar. Several years ago when the plants were first offered on the market we bought some for our farm and now is the first year they are in production.

Drapers tend to be a little larger than Dukes but the same pop you hear when you bite into a Duke tells you this is the same kind of firm berry that stays fresh in your fridge for weeks.
