Blueberry 'Brigitta' (Late season)

Vaccinium corymbosum, Highbush Blueberry

Hardy Shrub

Self unfertile - requires a pollinator. A late season variety producing large, light blue fruits on sturdy upright bushes that ripen towards the end of August. The firm, tasty fruits have a crisp texture making them ideal for freezing as well as eating fresh from the bush. Blueberry 'Brigitta' is ideal for growing with other blueberry varieties as it is not reliably self fertile, requiring cross pollination for a good crop.

Blueberry bushes make attractive shrubs for the patio or acidic borders, bearing masses of sweetly scented creamy white flowers in spring, and fiery crimson autumn foliage. Blueberries are packed with health-boosting compounds and are especially delicious in pies, muffins and jams. Height and spread: 180cm (71”).


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 28-32 months (16-20 months for 3l potted plant).

Blueberries require a well drained, acid soil in a sunny or semi shaded position. In areas where acid soil does not naturally occur, grow blueberry plants in patio containers using a mix of ericaceous compost and John Innes No. 3.
If possible, blueberries should be watered with rainwater because the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. Blueberries will begin to produce fruit in their third year. As fruits begin to develop, cover the plants with netting to protect the berries from birds. From their third year, begin to prune out the oldest stems each autumn to promote new growth and maintain a healthy plant framework.

Culinary: The fruit of Blueberry 'Brigitta' are particularly suitable for freezing.
