Full description and specifications

Vaccinium corymbosum 'Bluegold' is a variety of self-fertile American blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) from the Ericaceae family, noted especially for the superior quality of the fruits it produces. The cultivar 'Bluegold' is popular and productive, offering delicious fruits and a compact aspect of the shrub .

The 'Bluegold' blueberry is perennial, medium-small (compact), with a height of approximately 1.2 meters and a similar width when mature. In spring, it produces small, greenish-white, bell-shaped flowers, grouped in bunches. The flowers are followed by fruits that ripen in the middle of summer (July) .

The fruits of Vaccinium corymbosum 'Bluegold' are distinguished by their dark blue color, with a waxy film, and by their medium to large size. Their taste is particularly sweet and aromatic, which makes them highly appreciated for fresh consumption. Also, these high quality fruits are ideal for the preparation of desserts, jams and jellies, due to their pleasant flavor and texture.

The 'Bluegold' blueberry can be fertilized with organic fertilizer (possibly for acidophilic plants) between March and May.

The American blueberry 'Bluegold' prefers acidic, moist and well-drained soils, and grows best in full sun or partially shaded areas. It is resistant to low temperatures and has a very good tolerance to diseases and pests. To maintain the productivity and health of the plant, it is important to remove the old shoots and adjust the acidity of the soil every spring. Although the variety is self-fertile, productivity will be improved when you grow more cultivars, due to superior pollination.

Resistance: resistant to -30 degrees Celsius and drought. Immune to most diseases and pests. It does not require spraying and is generally considered 'Pest Free'.

Pot size: 11-14 cm or 2 liters.

Height with pots included: approx. 50-60 cm (varies depending on the season).

Plants for the garden or terrace are grown in unprotected spaces or with minimal protection (shading nets or anti-hail nets). For this reason, naturally, they cannot have perfect foliage - the leaves can show traces, defects or other damage.

In the cold season, the plants enter the period of vegetative rest.
