‘Blue Rose’ For cold, high-chill cli­mates. Bears fat, de­li­cious fruit from Christ­mas to late Fe­bru­ary. Self-pol­li­nat­ing, but pro­duces heav­ier crops when grow­ing along­side ‘Denise’. ‘Denise’ One of the best high-chill va­ri­eties for pot cul­ti­va­tion, bear­ing heavy crops of large fruit in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary. Self-pol­li­nat­ing, but team with ‘Blue Rose’ for greater re­turns. ‘Pow­der Blue’ Medium-chill rab­bit­eye. Pro­duces qual­ity, light blue fruit in late sum­mer and early au­tumn. Semi-de­cid­u­ous. Plant with an­other rab­bit­eye va­ri­ety for cross-pol­li­na­tion. ‘Sharp­blue’ The blue­berry to grow where oth­ers won’t cut it. Tough and rea­son­ably drought tol­er­ant, with ex­cel­lent large fruit. Low chill and self-pol­li­nat­ing. Spring har­vest.

‘Sun­shine Blue’ Com­pact, self-fer­tile and low chill. This is an ideal va­ri­ety to grow in a pot. Mid­sum­mer har­vest.
