Highbush Blueberry Elliott

* Fiche détaillée à télécharger

 

With the Elliott variety, home gardeners can enjoy fresh berries until September. The flavor is very tart until 60 percent of the berries are ripe

Very good productivity, concentrated fruiting, excellent keeping quality, late harvest (September) makes it an interesting variety to take advantage of the best market prices, but with risk of losing the last fruits by the first autumn frosts.

Should only be used in the best sites (hillside) and pruned severely to reduce the amount of fruit borne.

 

Generalities Blueberry

 

A blueberry bush in fruit is always beautiful. Whether it is in northern blueberry fields lined with lowbush blueberries or in southern blueberry fields with rows of bushes of several cultivars, the temptation to eat the fruit is uncontrollable as the beauty of the production is amazing.

Compared to the lowbush blueberry, which grows in clusters, the highbush blueberry is bushy, which facilitates its cultivation in rows, and the fruits are 3 to 5 times larger. It is a beautiful shrub that produces beautiful large fruit, but its hardiness must be considered when purchasing. Production requires three cultivars to ensure the best yields.
