Northcountry

Northcountry is a half-high blueberry that grows slightly larger than Northsky, reaching 3' in diameter. It displays compact bush characteristics similar to Northsky, but is more vigorous and adaptable in less than optimum soil types. With its dark green summer foliage and scarlet fall color, Northcountry is one of the best varieties for patio pots in the edible landscape.

Duke is still the early variety of choice for the north...the plant is extremely adaptable in many climates and geographies. It's very winter hardy in the far north, and very resistant to the hot summer in the southern parts of Europe.
