The Bluecrop variety is a Northern Highbush that is considered the best all around variety for adaptability, long production period, high yield fruit and disease resistance. There are other varieties with better ornamental value, but few perform better in the garden. Bluecrop is perhaps the most widely planted variety in the U.S. Good for eating fresh, preserving, baking, and freezing.
- Latin Name: Vaccinium Corymbosum sp.
- Plant Age: 1.5 years
- Bush Habit: Upright, open bush reaching 4-6' tall with red foliage in fall.
- Fruit: Medium large, classically sweet, firm, crack-resistant, light blue berries with good sub-acid flavor.
Delicious, exceptionally nutritious, and high in bioflavanoids. Consider climate suitability, ripening season and fruit size when selecting varieties and include at least two different varieties for cross-pollination and fruiting (any two varieties will do, regardless of ripening time). Grow in acidic, well-drained soil. Cottonseed meal is an excellent fertilizer for blueberries along with good quality compost and peat moss.
