• Burgandy planted

High Chill


A standout selection from Maine, Burgundy has small but distinctive foliage: bronzy colored new growth in spring, delicate gray-green leaves in summer, and deep burgundy fall colors. The berries are the size of small peas, light blue, and are presented for easy picking around the outside of each compact plant. Growth takes place as underground stems spread. Mature size is about 3' wide by 1' — 2' tall and perfect in a patio pot.

Blue Ribbon is a high yielding, early season berry with exceptional quality. It has performed well across a number of different environmental conditions. We envision Blue Ribbon primarily as a fresh berry with a moderate concentration of ripening, similar to Legacy. Additionally, Blue Ribbon produces excellent quality fruit.
