Blue Ray Highbush Organic Blueberry Plant
Bred by the USDA (from the foundation work of Dr. Frederick Coville in the 1920’s) and released in 1939, Blue Ray has been the leading northern highbush cultivar planted for U-pick markets in the Midwest. This is primarily due to its dependability, but also because of the flavor of the large, light-blue, sweet berries. A mature bush will yield between 10-12# of berries, and these will ripen from early to mid July here in Brown County, IN. This overlaps the same ripening time as Honey Creek, and the first harvest of Blue Gold. Blue Ray grows to be about 4-6 feet tall, and has a beautiful burgundy fall color.
