The Northsky Blueberry, 'Vaccinium 'Northsky', is a variety that has small, sky blue berries that are firm and flavorful. The flavor is similar to wild blueberries. It is the most cold hardy of all the blueberries and will be most productive with winter snow cover. It grows into a compact mound. Northsky begins spring completely covered in snow white blooms. The beautiful densely foliaged plant turns brilliant red in the fall.
Northsky needs another blueberry for pollination, so combine with Northland for maximum fruit production. It likes an organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. The shallow, fibrous roots need constant moisture and good drainage. Plants appreciate a good organic mulch. Prune early before spring growth.
Blueberries are delicious, exceptionally nutritious, high in bioflavanoids. Blueberries are a delicious gourmet treat that may be eaten fresh or used in cobbler, cake, sauce, jam, jelly or syrup. Birds love blueberries so be sure to plant enough to share!
