Blueberry, Cara's Choice
Berries stay firm and sweet on the bush for several weeks.
Uniform, medium-sized fruits are lighter blue and very firm. Berries stay firm and sweet on the bush for several weeks. Moderate to low-growing bushes have beautiful blue-green foliage. Plant with another variety to increase yield and size of fruits. One of several blueberries developed by the USDA breeder Dr. Mark Ehlenfeldt. Well-adapted for pick-your-own and home gardens in the Northeast.
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.
