Highbush Blueberries are beautiful plants, with graceful upright structure and gray-green foliage that turns shades of burgundy or orange in fall. Pearly white flowers appear in spring, leading to a lush crop of the sweet fruit. We've selected varieties for areas of the country where temperatures drop below 45°F for at least five weeks. Plants are hardy and long-lived, asking only for a sunny spot with highly organic, acid soil (pH of 4.5 is ideal, so dig in some peat moss when planting, if you're in doubt) and mulch to retain moisture.
Blueberries require cross-pollination to produce heavily, so we offer three varieties. 'Earliblue' will start the season with its large, light blue fruit. 'Blueray' is an early midseason variety whose large, powdery blue berries consistently rate high in taste tests. 'Jersey', one of the oldest, most widely grown, and most delicious varieties available, provides a late crop of very sweet, medium-size, dark blue berries on a 5-7ft shrub. Plants will fruit their second year and really hit their stride in another year or two. The trio includes one of each variety. Shipped as 18” dormant plants (without foliage) fully rooted in soil.
