Northern Highbush Type Bushes

Northern Highbush blueberry plants are the most widely planted blueberries in the world. These plants are vigorous and very cold-hardy, making them perfect for growers in cooler climates and northern regions. These varieties display bush shapes from short and compact to tall and open.  The berries range in size from ¼" to over 1" in diameter, and in color from almost black to light powder blue. Northern Highbush requires a minimum of 800 chilling hours for proper fruit set. All cultivars are self-fertile but will produce better crops if more than one variety is planted. As a landscape bonus, lovely flowers blossom on these bushes in spring, while gorgeous foliage looks beautiful in summer and turns to stunning colors in fall. This all-purpose fruit is delicious when eaten fresh, served with cream or used to make salads or pies.
