Colville Blueberries



Colville are firm, light-blue, large-sized blueberries with a small, dry scar after picking.

Their flavour is tart when they are ripe, but will sweeten up if they are left on the bush longer.

The fruit is aromatic, crack-resistant, and grows in loose clusters, making it possible to harvest by machine.

The fruit doesn't drop from the bush once ripe and provides moderate yields in a late harvest.

Colville Blueberries are suitable for local fresh markets and pick your own.

History Notes

Language Notes
