Blueberry - Toro
The Toro Blueberry, 'Vaccinium 'Toro', has large fruit that is dark blue, with an excellent blueberry flavor and is great for fresh eating.
A prolific bloomer, this blueberry produces a mid-season crop of blueberries starting in late July. The blooms have attractive showy pink flowers that turn to bright white. It offers striking multi-tone fall foliage colors - yellow to crimson red.
This blueberry is perfect for the home landscape. It doesn’t take up much space, so it makes for a fine landscape plant for borders, as a hedge or specimen.
Although blueberries are self-fertile, cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop. This blueberry prefers an acid soil for best plant health and 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 as needed in late winter beginning in the third year after planting.
Blueberries are delicious, exceptionally nutritious, high in bioflavonoids. 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!
