History and description of Bluecrop

Bluecrop is the leading commercial variety of northern highbush blueberry in the world. It is considered the best all round variety. Bluecrop is a mid season blueberry producing consistent yields of large, high quality berries with a slightly tart flavour. It has good disease resistance. It produces an upright, open growing bush 5-7ft (1.5-2m) in height and spread. There are other varieties with better ornamental value but none better in the garden.

All blueberries do best on a moist acid soil. Blueberries are self-fertile, but it is recognised that cross-pollination as a result of planting more than one variety together does improve yield.
