Razz ™ Blueberry
Vaccinium corymbosum 'Razz'
Now you can grow blueberries that have a delicious, sweet raspberry flavor! Razz ™ was bred in 1934 by USDA’s first blueberry breeder, Frederick Coville. For 75 years, it was a USDA numbered selection that was never named because it was too soft for large scale commercial shipping. It was cherished in researchers' home gardens for its amazing flavor, which makes it taste more like a wild huckleberry, and finally named and introduced in 2011. This unique variety also boasts warm and creamy white blooms, without a hint of pink, and stunningly showy fall foliage that colors up red and orange.
Vigorous Northern highbush that grows to 5-6 foot tall and is productive of sweet, medium size, light blue fruit that ripens quickly from green to blue in midseason. Pick it as it ripens for the most intense flavors.
