Bluejay is an early fruiting variety that flowers late making it good choice for the Irish climate. Highbush form so will grow up to 1.5m tall. Reliable cropper giving good yields and produces medium to large berries, fruits will start to ripen in July. For best flavour pick 1 week after they turn completely blue. Must have acidic soil; water with rainwater; mulch with ericaceous matter to keep soil moist. Bluejay has a very attractive yellow and orange colour in Autumn.
Needs acidic (pH 4-5.5), moisture-retentive but well-drained soil; can be grown in pots in ericaceous soil-based compost
