Bluecrop Blueberry (highbush)

Bluecrop is an upright, multistemmed shrub that is considered by many to be the best all-around blueberry variety, with consistent yields, disease resistance, and high quality, mid-season fruit. Great for preserves, baking, fresh eating and freezing. Harvest 10 -20 pounds every July.
Self-pollinating (but will produce a heavier crop if cross-pollinated with: Peach Sorbet, Jubillee, Pink Lemonade or Legacy)
Drought resistant. Like all blueberries, it loves acidic soil. High-bush.
