A southern high-bush blueberry variety that ripens early. Berries are large, firm and have a mild tart flavor. Farthing produces large quantities of berries and picking can last up to six weeks. Bushes are strong, compact, upright spreading and disease resistant. A blueberry for southern regions in zones 8 - 9.
