Elliott

Until Liberty and Aurora were introduced, Elliott was the leading late season blueberry for the fresh market. The berries are medium sized, with a small dry scar, and can be very tart if not completely ripe. Elliot ripens over a period of three to five weeks depending on location. Care must be taken during harvest as high temperatures can cause berries to wrinkle. Elliott has moderate vigor and must be adequately pruned to retain bush growth and berry size.
