Aurora Highbush Organic Blueberry Plant
2 gallon size potted plant

Aurora is a new variety that has pushed the envelope of late ripening blueberries. Elliott to date has been the undisputed ruler, but Aurora’s main cropping is just ever so slightly later. Admittedly, at our farm’s latitude, there is less distinction of ripening times for the late season cultivars, but Aurora is at least as late as Elliott. It is also much easier to grow than Elliott, and has much sweeter berries. This variety has been on our farm for a number of years, and it has been growing well and producing nice berries, the same size as Elliott. It has a habit that is branching, and it is a spreading shrub more than erect.  Aurora’s fruit comes ripe between  August and early September (earlier if summer is hot and dry, later if summer temps stay out of the 90’s) here in Brown County, Indiana.   USDA hardiness Zones 5-8
