Blueberry Brigitta

Highbush Blueberry Brigitta

A tasty, late season blueberry, Vaccinium corymbosum Brigitta is a deciduous fruiting shrub with a strong, upright habit, reaching nearly six feet high and wide in 10-20 years, although it can be kept smaller by judicious pruning. The medium to large, light blue fruits are firm, making them useful for freezing, and are rich in antioxidants. Brigitta is a heavy cropper. The elliptical, mid-green leaves turn red and orange in autumn. Plentiful waxy, bell-shaped, white flowers appear in early and mid-spring, and are attractive to pollinators; this blueberry needs a pollination partner, such as Bluecrop. Highbush blueberry Brigitta can also be grown in ericaceous, soil-based compost in a large container.
