Vaccinium corymbosum 'Blueray'

Blueray is fantastic for its very large blueberries and superior, sweet flavor; it's also a variety unusually well-suited to regions experiencing a changing climate. Blueray performs well in cold winter regions as well as areas with hotter summers. A winner from Michigan State University, it's been pleasing gardeners since the late 1970's.

This upright, open Northern Highbush hybrid grows to 4-6' tall, with exciting red and yellow fall color. Requires 800+ chill hours to set fruit. Can benefit from afternoon shade in hotter climates. Fruit ripens early midseason.

USDA Zone: 3-8

Mature Height:  4'-6' (Medium-Large)

Sun: Full Sun to Part Shade in Hot Climates

Ripening Time: Early Midseason/July-August

Pollination: Partially Self Fertile

"can't grow blueberries here"

We have soil ph of over 7, but somewhat sandy soil. By mixing about 1 lb. of sulfur per 10 sq. ft. we harvested our first "large" crop of blueberries last year.
Not knowing blueberry plants well, we planted about six different varieties; two to four plants each. The Bluecrop is my favorite, lots of large flavorful berries; followed closely by Blueray. I like having different varieties to make harvest last longer and frost might get the blossoms on an early one.
The blueberries (and everything else) I received from Raintree are beautiful plants. The prices are competitive and quality is unmatched.
This order was to replace varieties that were not good that we got from a local hardware store's greenhouse.
