The Blueray Blueberry, 'Vaccinium 'Blueray', is a heavy producer of high quality large, powder-blue berries with outstanding dessert flavor. Pink tinged flowers are followed by edible, sweet, round, deep blue berries to 1/2 inch across.

It is a midseason blueberry that ripens early August. The foliage turns a burgundy color in the fall.  It is similar to the Bluecrop, but a bit sweeter.

The blueberry grows best on sites where most other crops fail. They perform well on loose textured soils--mixtures of sand and peat are best. It prefers an organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade.

This deciduous shrub is dense with an upright, multiple-branched growth habit. 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. Although blueberries are self-fertile, cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop.

Blueberries are delicious, exceptionally nutritious, high in bioflavanoids. Blueberries are a gourmet treat
