Blueray blueberries

Blueray is a northern highbush cultivar that makes a great cross-pollination partner for other highbush varieties. It has sweet, light blue berries that are ripe for picking in early to mid-July. These plants top off at 5 to 6 feet and have a 3- to 4-foot spread. Be forewarned: Blueray is known for being especially prolific. Too much of a good thing can stress the plant, so it needs regular pruning.
