Northcountry blueberries are very light blue in colour, almost like aluminium blue.
The berries are medium-sized, about 1/2 inch (1 cm) wide, and have a sweet flavour, somewhat reminiscent of wild blueberries.
The hardy bush grows up to 3 feet (1 metre) tall, and the 3 feet (1 metre) wide, and produces 3 to 7 pounds (1.3 to 3 kg) of fruit per bush.
Its compact form, dark green leaves, turning scarlet red in the fall, and many blossoms make it a good ornamental for home gardeners.
Northcountry blueberries were developed from a cross between blueberries referred to as “G65X Ashworth” and “R2P4” at the University of Minnesota (USA) and were released 1986.
