Description

The same exceptional flavor of a wild blueberry. In spring, these mounded, “half-high” plants are dotted with white flowers, which give way to small- to medium-size berries that will give you a taste of the Northern wilds. Early-mid season. Introduced in 1986. Cold-hardy. Ripens in late June to early July. Self-pollinating, but will yield larger crops if pollinated with Northblue.

Planted last year
Since I have only had it for one year, I'm not sure what to expect but I am not nearly as impressed with Northcountry as I am with Northblue. I has an interesting growth habit which is is low and broad as opposed to upright. I doesn't have nearly as many blossoms or blueberries as Northblue.

Coming along well - slower than Northblue however
Last spring we purchased one Northcountry and one Northblue blueberry. We planted them in pots, comparable to 5 (liquid) gallon buckets, with the same soil mix, and had them placed near each other. Both are looking well but I must echo the first reviewer that the Northcountry has not been as prolific this first growing season. I am excited to see what will happen in future.

Very little growth
Just like my other blueberry bush, this one has barely grown. I'm thinking that it is the soil in the container and so I am looking to transfer this to the ground this fall. Hopefully, I will see some improvement.
