Northblue Blueberry



Full sun, partial shade, attracts birds, zone 3

Vaccinium ‘Northblue’

Pot size #1, #2

Introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1983. A dwarf plant that has Spring white blooms and red glossy foliage in the Fall. The blueberries that are formed are large, dark blue, juicy, and have what is described as a “wild taste”. It does not need another plant to bear fruit, but will have better yields with cross-pollination. Superior variety for processing, baking, and eating fresh.

Prefers a moist, well-drained, acidic soil. Able to withstand the snow and colder climates. Little pruning is required and prune to remove broken or damaged limbs.
