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.
