• Northcountry in container

High Chill


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.

While we still have much to learn about this new variety’s performance in Central Mexico, what we’ve seen so far in small test blocks is very promising.  When pruned similarly to Ventura we see large-jumbo sized fruit, excellent bloom and pack-outs above 95%.
