Description

Quarter-size berries! This variety is big and bountiful — the largest early-season blueberry. The fruit has an outstanding flavor fresh, baked, and in preserves. Freezes well too! Tolerates moisture, including clay type soils. As a landscape bonus, the plant features snowy blossoms in early summer and stunning orange leaves in fall. Introduced in 1976. Disease-resistant to root rot. Cold-hardy. Ripens in June. Self-pollinating, but will yield larger crops if you plant two or more.

This is a hardy plant, recommended to us by friends. As well, the Patriot blueberries have a reputation for freezing well and are excellent for baking.

is this variety late to bud? I planted last spring, and my other varieties have leafed out already, some with flowers, while this still just has some not very swollen red buds. Wondering if perhaps they didn't survive.
Matthew on May 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am in Fairbanks, Alaska and I planted these in the ground last spring. This year they just started to show buds about a week ago (no leaves yet), but then it is still getting below freezing here at night. I also have other types of Blueberry plants next to the patriot and they are all the same, just starting to bud out. I would not worry about them as long as they are showing buds.
Is Patriot blueberry a 'hybrid'? Is there a difference between Patriot and "Patriot Hybrid"?
jjgarden on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All current blueberry varieties originated as "hybrids" of two blueberry parent plants. Patriot resulted from a natural cross between (Dixi x Michigan Lowbush No. 1) x Earliblue blueberries. I believe Patriot and Patriot Hybrid are the same; not clear why the name includes "hybrid" in some cases.

A Winner
Planted immediately on receipt in mix of soil and compost. (Ph<5) Mulched with 2 inches of wood chips and fertilized with Miracid. watered as needed. Excellent growth first year and lots of new growth after a mild winter. Will even produce a few berries this year.

Favorite northern blueberry
After several years of different varieties for northern (MN) gardens, the one I reordered was the Patriot. It takes up little space, yields well, and has large, tasty berries instead of the tiny ones the other northern varieties bear.

Expections are high
I just planted my Patriot blueberry last year, and am awaiting another delivery in the next couple of weeks. Last years delivery was on time, and the bushes looked great. So I am expecting my first Patriot blueberry so this season.
