NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

Common Blueberry
Red Bounty Raspberry

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.

Red Bounty Raspberry is a hardy, self-fertile variety that produces large, red berries with great taste ideal for preserves, jam, and fresh eating. Red Bounty Raspberry stands on its own - no trellis required.

The Red Bounty Raspberry is a fast-growing floricane. This means that raspberries will not grow on canes the year they first grow. The mature canes they do grow on, however, produce more berries than primocane varieties.
