Superior is a NEW! variety released by the University of Minnesota. Blueberry introduction that matures the majority of its fruit later in the season than other blueberry varieties that can be grown in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 and 4. Superior has been the most productive cultivar in trials at Grand Rapids, MN (Zone 3) among the most productive blueberry selections in trials at Becker, MN (Zone 4).The plant reaches a height of 4 to 5 feet and a spread of 4-5 feet at Becker in central Minnesota. At Grand Rapids, in northern Minnesota, plants are 3 to 5 feet tall and 3-4 feet in diameter. The plants are similar in stature to Chippewa. They are more upright than Northblue but have been rated similar in hardiness and begin blooming several days later than Northblue. Plants produce a typical display of white flowers during bloom in May and maroon foliage in October. The berries average 1.3 to 1.4 g in mass compared to 1.4 to 1.7 g for Northblue and are similar in size to Chippewa.  The berries are light to medium blue with a small picking scar and higher ratings for firmness and than Northblue. DELICIOUS! Zone 3-7. Size: 1yo tissue cultured plant.

    I absolutely love these half-high blueberry bushes for their versatility in the landscape. Makes a beautiful fall specimen and delicious berries too! Arrived in great shape, ready for planting.

    Thank you.
