Are small, wimpy blueberries not your thing? Do you like large, juicy, tangy blueberries? Well then get ready to fall for a new favorite: the Patriot Highbush Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum 'Patriot'). These blueberry bushes are beautiful and productive. They also are known for their large, round blueberries.
The Patriot Highbush Blueberry produces large crops of big, dusky blue fruit with firm flesh and plenty of flavor. Once picked, your berries will store well in the refrigerator, letting you enjoy them fresh for weeks. Add some to your breakfast cereal, added to yoghurt, turned into jam or jelly, or baked in a pie or muffins. Use your imagination--you will have plenty of berries to experiment with.
This variety ripens intermittently so you will have multiple harvests as your bushes consistently produce large crops for you and your family to enjoy.
In May, your Patriot Highbush Blueberry will be covered with clusters of white bell shaped blossoms, pulling in pollinators from near and far.
This astounding Patriot Highbush Blueberry is self-pollinating but it produces better when planted with another variety that blooms at the same time. Double your blueberry bushes and you will give plenty of pollen for your bees and butterflies to enjoy.
The bushes of the Patriot Highbush Blueberry are a little smaller than other varieties, but they are still tall enough to use as an edible hedge if you choose. This variety winters well, and the deep green foliage of summer, will turn to a brilliant orange to burgundy in the fall, adding a beautiful bit of color to your yard.
The Patriot Highbush Blueberry enjoys full sun to partial shade, and it dearly loves rich, acidic soil. It likes to keep its feet moist, so plant it where the soil is damp to wet, but well drained. You might want to add composted plant matter and peat moss to enrich the soil.
Add a few Patriot Highbush Blueberry bushes to your cart and get ready to enjoy one of the largest blueberries on the market. Maybe buy an extra bush or two and share it with the local bird population. Not only will you get to enjoy the beautiful foliage of your Patriot Highbush Blueberry, but you will also be able to watch the birds, flitting from bush to bush enjoying the berries as much as you.
