Bluecrop Blueberry

Blueberry

Description: Bluecrop is an early-mid eason variety that prodcues large, light blue fruits; excellent flavour. One of the main high yielding commercial varieties. Fruit has a good shelf life. Vigorous upright grower and have good disease resistance.

Blueberry Growing Tips: Happier planted in full sun or partial shade. Prefers moist, well-drained soil or ericaceous compost in a pot. Keep the plant well watered with rainwater, not tap water. Pruning is rarely needed in the first two years. After that you should prune in late February to early March. Remove a quarter of the branches every year to keep the plant productive. If you would like to eat the fruits yourself, don't forget to cover the plant to stop the birds getting them!
