The Best Blueberries to Grow North of the Carolinas!

Contains Blue Ray, Reka, and Darrow
This collection of top-quality Blueberry hybrids represents the best names to grow in northern regions of the country. These 3 Northern Highbush varieties were selected for hardiness, fruit quality, drought tolerance, and compact 4- to 5-foot habit.

Northern Highbush blueberries are a magnificent ornamental edible! They bear white flowers in spring, glossy leaves in summer, spectacular foliage in fall, and bright red stems in winter. These blueberries would be highly sought even if they didn't give you all those huge harvests of luscious berries!

Blueberries are easy in full sun and most acidic soils. (The rule of thumb is that where Azaleas will grow, so will blueberries!) They are vigorous, need no pruning, and are generally untroubled by disease.

In this collection you will receive 1 plant each of the following varieties:

Blue Ray - Expect huge yields of light blue, very large berries on this plant! A fine pollinator for other varieties, it's also a heavy producer, yielding up to 20 pounds in a single season. In autumn, the foliage turns bright scarlet.

Reka - The best for canning, this early bearer sets unbelievable yields of mid-sized berries, very uniform and sweet. Terrific fall foliage changes, too.

Darrow - A late-fruiting variety with huge, slightly flattened berries the size of nickels! Widely adapted, it is renowned for the size and sweet flavor of its berries.
