Bluecrop

Moderate vigour, but very productive, height to 2.1m. Fruit is light blue, very large and firm with good flavour. Flavour is best with the first few picks and seems to be better in areas where warm days are followed by cool nights. Small picking scar – excellent fresh fruit. Most popular variety world wide. Bush requires excellent drainage. Very easy and cheap to hand pick in relation to other popular varieties. Can have a percentage of fruit that stays red and doesn’t ripen properly, but very consistent yields year to year when pruned correctly.
