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

Colville Blueberries were released 1949.

Language Notes

Colville Blueberries were named after Dr Frederick V. Colville, a botanist who worked for the USDA at the turn of the 20th century.
