Blueberry Jersey

Blueberry Jersey

Late variety of highbush blueberry, widely grown and well adapted to northern European conditions. High yields of small to medium-sized, deep blue berries, sweet, with a good balance of tartness, rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Pick from late August; the berries 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 with open habit, easy to grow and good in colder areas. Must have acid soil; water with rainwater; mulch with ericaceous matter to keep soil moist. Hot orange autumn colour.
