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.

The Madawaska Raspberry is a productive, early-fruiting variety with dark red berries that are juicy with a medium sweet flavor. They are very winter-hardy with great disease resistance. The berries are great for fresh eating and for baking or preserves.

The Madawaska Raspberry is a primocane variety. Prune stalks down each winter or early spring to get higher fruit yields and easier harvesting.
