This Blueberry Bundle includes each of the following varieties each in 1 gallon containers:
One of the earliest Blueberries to ripen, and one of our classic favorites, Duke Blueberry bears good crops of sweet, firm, and tasty fruit. We like them so much, they often disappear before we can get them home. Reliable and very productive, one Duke plant can produce over 20 lbs. of berries. These powder-blue berries begin ripening in early July.
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.
One of the best all-around varieties, Bluecrop’s large, sweet, flavorful, powder-blue berries grow in large clusters and ripen over the course of a month in mid-summer. Bluecrop is also prized for its beautiful, crimson red, fall foliage.
From Nova Scotia, Canada, Brunswick Blueberry is an attractive, compact shrub that bears abundant crops of flavorful, sweet, sky-blue berries. These delicious berries are accented by a backdrop of glossy, dark green foliage.
