Bred at the University of Minnesota Chippewa Blueberry is a 3-4 ft. tall compact bush that produces abundant, very light blue, sweet and tasty berries. Ripening in July, they are a delicious summer snack and topping for ice cream. Chippewa is also a fine ornamental shrub with beautiful, red fall foliage.
