Blueberry Patriot

  • Zone: 3b
  • Harvest Time: Early
  • Size: Highbush 4-6' High

This one has resistance to Phytophthora cinnamoni root disease, of which we have no experience with. Fruit size of the Patriot is large, about 49 berries per cup, then getting to be about 60 berries per cup during the latter part of harvest. You can expect 10-20 pounds per harvest when plants are coming into maturity. This originally was meant for the home gardeners, but the great attributes made it more available to the commercial plantings. Of the varieties we sell here, the Patriot is usually the first to be harvested.
