Some of the best blueberries for your region include Spartan, an early season berry. It has large, firm fruit, light blue in color, and has excellent flavor. The bush is vigorous, upright and open, and productive. Northcountry, which also ripens early. The berries are very light blue, sweet and mild and the blueberry bush is vigorous,
heavily branched, growing 36 to 40 inches tall. Another choice is Northsky. The Northsky variety ripens early. The berries are medium in size and sky blue in color. The bush has short stature, about 10 to 18 inches tall. The plants are
dense and have glossy dark green summer foliage that turns dark red in the fall. And
Duke. Duke is a variety that ripens early. The color of the berries is medium
blue. The berries are medium to large size with a good flavor. I am sure there will be other choices in your local garden center. Enjoy!
