Heavy Producer, Amazing Taste
Half-High, Early Mid-Season
Northland Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum x Vaccinium angustifolium) is a cold hardy Half-High variety that was developed by the team at Michigan State University and released in 1967. Northland a high yielding plant and is very cold hardy.
It also has a more vigorous growth rate than other similar varieties. This attribute, coupled with its huge crop, made Northland a quick success.
The medium-size, soft, medium blue berries are held in long, loose clusters throughout the plant. Northland has a sweet, wild Blueberry flavor. It’s perfect for eating fresh with your favorite cereal or cooking up a wonderful batch of Blueberry jam or preserves.
Use this variety up fresh or cook into jams and preserves. Rather than freezing this variety, try dehydrating them as a welcome winter snack.
Because of its high natural sugar content, you’ll want to use these in sauces, chutneys, salsas and in jams and preserves. Play around with reducing any added table sugar for much healthier baked goods.
A Mid-Season ripening fruit, the productive Northland Blueberry will produce 3 to 12 pounds of fruit off of a single plant.
Northland Blueberry is a consistent producer, even after a tough winter. The blossoms will tolerate light spring frosts. The pliable arching limbs can withstand the weight of heavy winter snow.
Half-High Blueberries can be used a number of ways in the landscape. Plant them with ornamental shrubs or plant your Northland Blueberry into a patio container. It requires a pH of 5.5 or lower to thrive. It stays compact. Use this as an edible landscaping plant in a shrub border at the edge of your property.
You’ll enjoy beautiful spring blooms and fabulous sweet berries in the height of the growing season. Then in the fall, the yellow-orange leaf color adds an artistic brilliance to your landscape or patio. You’ll love the robust, healthy berry!
