High Chill


Top Hat is a perfect name for this dwarf cultivar as it grows 1' — 2' high and wide. Top Hat is the result of crossing a short stature Highbush with a compact, small Lowbush Blueberry. Plentiful white blooms in spring give way to attractive light blueberries that are pea sized and larger. Top Hat is perfect for defined border plantings or growing in patio containers. It also makes an excellent candidate for a bonsai project.

Clockwork is a variety specifically released for the process market. Its uniform ripening of medium size, round fruits makes it machine harvestable and good for processing. With an intense flavor, it performs really well as a frozen fruit variety, maintaining its structure well after thaw.
