Elliott Blueberry
Northblue Blueberry

Elliott Blueberry is a very high yielding, commercial highbush blueberry variety. If you're lucky enough to live in a suitable climate zone, Elliott Blueberry will serve you well. Its medium-size berries mature late in the summer and have a mild flavor. The berries are firm and store well.

While this variety is self-pollinating, we recommend pairing Elliott Blueberry with Blue Crop Blueberry to increase the berry production of both varieties.

Note: Blueberries require very specific soil conditions. They need well-drained soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.0. If the starting pH of your soil is between 5.1 and 6.2 you can lower it by adding sulphur. We recommend against planting blueberries in soil with a starting pH greater than 6.2. Please do your own research before buying any blueberry plants.

Northblue Blueberry produces the best tasting of the half-high blueberries we carry. It's a cross between a highbush and a lowbush variety, which makes it suitable for smaller yards. For its size, Northblue Blueberry produces abundant quantities of large, firm berries. They are sweet and juicy.

While this variety is self-pollinating, we recommend pairing it with another suitable blueberry to increase the berry production of both varieties.
