Blue Gold Highbush Organic Blueberry Plant
Selected in 1989, Blue Gold was a plant breeders success for late mid-season, sweet blueberries. Blue Gold has a short stature, with a tendency for growing into a nice, wide bush. Mature height is 4’, with a classic bushy habit. This cultivar has been a dependable producer. Blue Gold makes up the backbone of our mid-season production plants. Even though Blue Gold is short in stature, it yields heavily. It can supply the same quantity of quality fruit produced on the taller highbush. Local yields are between 10-12# of berries on mature plants. In my discussions with other growers over the years, I’ve learned that Blue Gold seems to be a cultivar that performs consistently well in many locations of the Midwest and East. Blue Gold has medium sized berries that are very sweet right after turning blue. The berries ripen from early thru mid July here in Brown County, IN.
