Blueberry Goldtraube

Blueberry Goldtraube

An early variety of highbush blueberry, bred in Germany, so well adapted to north European conditions. Reliable crops of large, sweet, well-flavoured juicy berries, rich in antioxidants and vitamins and good for eating fresh, from early July. Blueberry ‘Goldtraube’ produces deep purplish-blue berries that ripen over several weeks, holding well on the bush. For the best flavour, pick a week after the berries have turned completely blue and are developing a white ‘bloom’; keep picking as the berries ripen. Vigorous, upright bush, good in colder areas and a heavy cropper. Must have acid soil; water with rainwater; mulch with ericaceous matter to keep soil moist. Beautiful red and gold autumn colour.
