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.

Blue Treasure Haskap is a late season cultivar, ideal for cooler climates, and a favorite from Berries Unlimited. The berries are delectably sweet and ideal for fresh eating, but can also be made into jam, juice, and wine.

Blue Treasure is a late pollinating variety. Pair with other late pollinators to have a higher yield.
Kawai is a great companion variety.
