Large Sweet Blueberries

The Nelson Blueberry, Vaccinium corymbosum 'Nelson', is a variety of highbush blueberry that produces outstanding fruit on an ornamental bush. It would look great in a mixed border, or planted within a grouping of fruit trees.

The berries of this plant are often considered particularly large and sweet. They ripen mid-summer and provide a harvest that will be irresistible to both you and your feathered friends. In fact, nothing compares to the succulent burst of flavor that follows the warm gush of a freshly-picked blueberry straight from the bush!

The delicious berries may be the highlight of your blueberry bush, but it has a lot to offer both before and after the harvest. Lovely pink-blushed, white blossoms precede the berries in the spring, and fiery shades of orange and red decorate the branches in autumn.

Even in winter, when the branches are bare, their purplish-red shade brightens the winter landscape.

The fruit is terrific right off the shrub, but also great in pies, preserves and a variety of other culinary dishes. The berries are also a veritable feast for birds and other wildlife.

An abundant harvest of delicious fruit on a lovely bush with four-season interest, the Nelson is a lovely choice for any home garden or landscape.
