Plant Characteristics

Bluecrop Blueberry

The Bluecrop Blueberry is a popular variety for growing both commercially and in the home garden. This Northern Highbush variety is cold hardy, self-pollinating and will reach a height of 4' to 6' in a few years. A heavy bearer, the large blueberries on this bush will begin to ripen in the middle of summer, and have you picking for weeks! The Bluecrop Blueberry is highly adaptable and disease resistant, making it ideal for gardeners with or without a green thumb. These blueberries taste great fresh or frozen, and can be used for eating fresh or baking pies and cobblers. As an added bonus, the leaves on this bush turn a beautiful red color in the fall.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and grow right out of the box.

Product Questions

What can be added to soil to encourage blueberry's? I have several planted for five years with no growth, or fruit. Currently they are less than 2 feet tall leaves are abundant and healthy looking, with normal red color in fall.

A few things to keep in mind for fruiting. Make sure the blueberries have full sun. Do you have a variety that needs another blueberry variety for pollination? Have you done a soil pH test? You may need to amend your soil with a soil acidifier there are a few products on the market that you could choose from. I would suggest going to a local hardware store and see what they have to offer for soil amending. Have you experienced a late frost that the flowers never get to set fruit? Do you have enough pollinators in the area?

My bluecrop blueberry plant that I ordered is doing well in my yard, thanks! Do you treat the roots with the special fungi before they come to me?
Question by: Jeff Ulmer on Jul 1, 2021, 7:35 AM
We dip all of our bare root nursery stock in the Super gel that does contain Ectomycorrhizal fungi, but when you do the root soak for 6-8 hours most likely that is washed off the roots. Possibly there is still some left on the roots when you planted.

Best time to plant?
Question by: CARL HARTMANN on May 2, 2022, 4:43 PM
We believe springtime is the best time to plant. This allows the plants a full growing season to properly establish their roots.
