Vaccinium Corybosum ‘Bluecrop’
Blueberry Bluecrop is a bushy, upright deciduous shrub growing to about 6 to 8 feet. Creamy white flower clusters produce light blue berries, which ripen in midsummer. The fruit is great for preserves, baking, freezing, or eating fresh. Birds and wildlife love them too. Blueberries do best if they are cross pollinated with more than one variety that has the same bloom time.
It is important to plant blueberries in an acidic soil with a pH of between 4 and 5. They will not perform well with a high pH.
