Blueberry Northland

Blueberry Northland

A compact form of blueberry, Vaccinium corymbosum Northland is one of the hardiest cultivars and more tolerant of a less acid soil than some, although it does need a definitely acid soil. It’s an early to mid-season blueberry, with medium-sized, sweet, juicy berries with a good flavour reminiscent of wild bilberries. Pretty white bell-shaped blossom is borne in spring, followed by the blue-black berries with their lovely bloom, starting to ripen in late July. The bush is quite small, about 4’/1.2m, with a spreading habit, and is a reliable, heavy cropper. As a ‘half-high’ cultivar, Blueberry Northland is ideal for growing in soil-based ericaceous compost in containers, where the soil is too heavy or not sufficiently acid.
