Bluecrop is a highbush blueberry cultivar. It produces all-purpose blueberries that are firm and somewhat tart — great for preserves, baking, freezing, and fresh eating. With this shrub, you will harvest as much as 10–20 lbs. of fruit every July. It also provides some nice landscape value with a bloom of white flowers in May and fiery red color in the fall.

 

Blueberry plants are self-fertile, but cross-pollination produces a better crop — creating larger yields of larger berries. So it is best to plant more than one variety with the same bloom time 4'–6' apart. Full sun is the ideal condition for this shrub, meaning it should get at least 6 hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day.

The shrub provides nutrition for bees in early summer. White-tailed deer and eastern cottontails eat the leaves and twigs of this shrub. It also produces one of the most important fruits for wild animals. Some animals that eat these blueberries include: eastern bluebird, northern cardinal, gray catbird, wild turkey, northern mockingbird, brown thrasher, mourning dove, American robin, red fox, eastern cottontail, white-footed mouse, striped skunk and eastern chipmunk.
