Tart, melt-in-your-mouth blueberries that come just in time for the 4th of July and last all the way to Labor Day!
Includes one pot of Bountiful Harvests 'Elliot' Blueberry.
An excellent choice for those looking to hold on to the taste of summer as long as possible! This upright, vigorous grower produces an abundance of lovely pink and white flowers in the spring, emerald green foliage and light blue berries up to half an inch in size in the summer, and dramatic fiery-red leaves in fall. 'Elliot' is truly an edible ornamental plant!
A late season bearer, 'Elliot' produces medium-sized fruits and abundant crops of up to 25 pounds each year! These blueberries ripen over a period of three to five weeks, and the tart flavor at the beginning of the season turns to pure sweetness as cool autumn weather sets in. Sometimes called "the world's healthiest food", they are high in antioxidants and bioflavonoids. Although we recommend planting two or more for maximum performance, 'Elliot' is a self-pollinating variety and you will get fruit with only one plant!
Blueberries are exceptional landscape plants! 'Eliott' produces a medium sized bush that can be grown in a large pot or whisky barrel, or used as a decorative hedge. Blooming later than most varieties, 'Elliot' avoids losing blooms to late spring frosts. Its berries begin ripening in midsummer and are ready for harvest by late July and August.
Virtually maintenance free! 'Elliott' bears more fruit at an earlier age than other varieties and needs little pruning, has no serious pest or disease problems, and is adaptive to a wide variety of soils.
Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment in any landscape. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.
