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.

This new rabbiteye cultivar from the University of Georgia is still under commercial trialing in Europe. Titan is showing fast growth and yield potential at early stages with very large, firm fruit. It is a midseason rabbiteye that requires a pollinator variety to ensure good fruit set. It grows well and performs best in warm areas with hot summer temperatures.
