‘Blueray’ is an excellent midseason berry, particularly for home gardeners. Due to its winter hardiness, this vigorous plant is a popular choice across the Northeast and Midwest. ‘Blueray’ produces high yields of small, tight clusters of medium to large blue fruit. ‘Blueray’ adds seasonal interest to any landscape as an attractive deciduous shrub with white flowers in spring, striking autumn colors, and bright red wood in the winter. Flavors of sweetness with a desirable hint of acidity make it a fine flavored fruit. Blueberries are naturally high in antioxidants and have a high vitamin content. Blueberries are excellent in pies and make delicious jams and preserves. Best of all, bake your own blueberry muffins!
Like all blueberries, it must have moist, acidic soil to flourish. Set plants out as early as possible in the spring. Prune branches back about 1/2 their length at planting time with no further pruning required the next 3 years. Prune annually thereafter, during the dormant period.
