Elliott Blueberry - one of 2 Blueberries offered in the tree sale

Elliott is a high yielding Northern Highbush cultivar. Once mature, Elliot should yield 8 to 12 pounds. Of all the Northern Highbushes Elliott is the last to ripen. It typically ripens in August and has a 4 to 5 week harvest period. Elliott has one of the highest levels of antioxidants of all blueberry varieties. The berries grow in loose clusters and resist cracking. Once picked Elliott has a storage life of up to 12 weeks. Although blueberries are self pollinating the crop will be noticeably better if pollinated by other varieties. Lovely pink-tinged flowers will grace your landscape each spring. Cold-tolerant.
