Why the Bluecrop Highbush Blueberry?
Blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, blueberry cobbler, or fresh blueberries for summertime snacking! Bluecrop Highbush Blueberry will bring delectable fruits right outside your door. Bluecrop is a classic variety with excellent flavor and that delicate balance of sweet and tart that makes blueberries so addictive. In fall, you’ll get a feast for the eyes when Bluecrop’s deep green leaves turn tomato-red. Plant this awesome Accent in a prominent spot, where the brilliant autumn foliage will garner oohs and ahhs, and the berries will be conveniently close for easy picking. So pretty, so tasty, so satisfying.
So many of the plants we grow for food come from distant places. The Highbush Blueberry is a homegrown American native. It grows in the wild from Maine all the way to Florida, ranging westward to Minnesota and Louisiana. Over the years, plant breeders have worked to improve the size, flavor, and quantity of its berries. Bluecrop was developed by USDA horticulturist Frederick Coville in 1934. Even today, it stands out for its hardiness, drought resistance, productivity, and vigor. In fact, it’s probably the most popular Blueberry variety in the U.S.
How to use in the landscape?
Take the time to appreciate Bluecrop Highbush Blueberry’s exquisite flowers in the spring. The dainty white blossoms, shaped like tiny, upside-down urns, make a pleasing show. Honey bees love the blooms, and they get right to work pollinating them.

How To Plant
Acid soil is key to growing Blueberries successfully. These peat-loving Accents require very low–pH conditions in order to thrive. If your soil isn’t naturally acidic, you may want to grow Bluecrop Blueberry in a large container or raised bed. Give it all-day sun if possible and use lots of organic matter—both as a soil amendment and as mulch. Water weekly if no rain falls. Bluecrop Blueberry is self-pollinating, but you’ll get bigger fruits and more of them if you plant another variety of Highbush Blueberry nearby so they can pollinate each other.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
