Blueberry Bluecrop

Blueberry Bluecrop

Excellent mid-season variety of highbush blueberry, bearing medium-sized to large, firm, light blue berries with a rich, aromatic flavour and high sugar content. The berries, rich in antioxidants and vitamins, ripen from early August over a long period, holding well on the bush. For the best flavour, pick a week after berries have turned completely blue and are developing a white ‘bloom’; keep picking as the berries ripen. Vigorous, upright bush with open habit; reliable, heavy cropper. Must have acid soil; water with rainwater; mulch with ericaceous matter. Blueberry ‘Bluecrop’ turns a beautiful crimson in autumn.
