‘Senmao 1’ (CNPVP 20180206) is a new northern highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) cultivar developed by Dalian Senmao Modern Agriculture Co., Ltd., Dalian, China. The new cultivar has several desirable attributes for blueberry growers. Among these, the berry is large to very large and the average weight is 4.49 g (maximum of 6.55 g). It is an early-season cultivar with good flavor, a good balance between sweetness and acidity, and medium firmness. The plant is vigorous and the growth habit is semi-upright. ‘Senmao 1’ is self-fertile, but it likely benefits from cross-pollination. ‘Senmao 1’ is a promising new cultivar with great economic potential in the local, large-fruit, fresh berry market.
