Considered to be one of the most beautiful blueberry plants with bright red foliage in fall, the large and sweet berries that form in clusters make Toro an exceptional home garden variety. Fruit flavor is rarely tart, and berries are firm, excellent for desserts. Northern highbush blueberries require 800 to 1000 chill hours to set fruit.
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.
