SOLD OUT

NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

Common Blueberry
Indigo Gem Haskap (Honeyberry)

Common Blueberry is an August maturing berry that is wonderfully flavorful and contain more antioxidants by volume than the highbush varieties.
They'll give your baked goods a wonderful pop of flavor.

It isn't as large, pretty, or high yielding as the other varieties we carry. But Common Blueberry is one of the only blueberries that will survive in plant hardiness zones 1A to 2B.

Note: Blueberries require very specific soil conditions. They need well-drained soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.0.

Indigo Gem has fruit similar in size and firmness to the Tundra variety, making it suitable for commercial production or your home garden.

Indigo Gem is an early pollinating variety. Pair with other early pollinators to have a higher yield.
Berry Blue or Aurora are great companion varieties.
