Very heavy crops of medium sized blueberries. Rarely bothered by late frost. Mid Season.
Fruits ripen in mid season and the harvest goes on for weeks. (You need two kinds for cross-pollination, three being even better.) The 5-6' tall bushes become a blaze of crimson in the fall, so they are ideal arranged as an informal hedge. Set plants 4-8' apart and make sure the soil is acidic. You'll have fresh blueberries for pies and preserves for many, many years. Bluecrop is a Midseason variety. Medium size fruit with a high sugar content. Plants yield heavily.
Plant blueberry plants in a sunny to partially shaded area, in a well-drained, very acidic soil, with a pH of 4.2-5.2. Plant at least two different varieties for cross pollination. Set blueberry plants 4-8 feet apart (3 feet apart for hedges).
As fruit ripens, cover blueberry plants with netting to deter birds. Pick fruit promptly to discourage insects.
