Description

  • Variety: Northern Highbush
  • Plant Age: 1 Year
  • Zones: 3-7
  • Chill Hours: 1000+
  • Harvest: Early season.
  • Bush Habit: Open, spreading bush reaching 3'-5' tall with fiery red, orange and yellow foliage in fall.
  • Fruit: Large, delicately sweet flavored berries.
  • Facts of note: Patriot was selected for home gardeners who desire a cold-hardy, Northern Highbush variety that bears consistent crops. Patriot's low growing bush reflects its partial lowbush parentage. It is adaptable to many soil types and may perform better in wetter soils than many other varieties. Patriot makes an excellent container and landscape variety with its showy white blooms in the spring, dark green summer foliage, and fiery orange-red fall colors.

Delicious, exceptionally nutritious, 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.

Check out our Fruit Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.
