Blue Crop Blueberry
Northland Blueberry

Blue Crop Blueberry is a high yielding, commercial highbush blueberry variety that is widely planted. If you're lucky enough to live in a suitable climate zone, Blue Crop Blueberry is a great choice. Its very large berries taste amazing. They are very firm and store well.

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

You must prune Blue Crop Blueberry to maintain its health and productivity.

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 sulfur. 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.

Northland Blueberry is the hardiest of the half-high highbush blueberries. It's also the best looking. In fact, it is frequently planted as an ornamental. Northland Blueberry produces large quantities of medium-size berries that taste amazing but are on the softer side, which matters to some people.

You must pair Northland Blueberry with another suitable blueberry variety because it is not self-pollinating.

You must also prune Northland Blueberry to maintain its health and productivity.
