HIGH CHILL

                                       Bluecrop

Bluecrop blueberries, until recent years, have been the industry’s most widely planted variety. An easy bush to grow, Bluecrop blueberries have presented very few field management problems. It can withstand spring frosts quite well, resulting in high, consistent yields. The fruit can be tart and have a large percentage of “red backs” if picked too early or if the bush is over cropped. Machine harvesting of Bluecrop remains a challenge but has become more feasible with the use of color sorters in processing lines. The Bluecrop blueberry is recommended for process and local fresh market sales.
