Vaccinium corymbosum hybrid
‘Draper’ blueberry produces large, sweet berries with a thicker skin for a crisp texture and better resistance to splitting. Compact bushes fit into small gardens and yield easy-to-pick fruit clusters. Yellow fall foliage. Developed at MSU, 'Draper' is highly winter-hardy and boasts outstanding quality fruit, even in mid to high chill climates in the western U.S. It has a compact growth habit and ripens early-medium season, with high yields from young plants.
