This blueberry was bred to be more beautiful than traditional varieties but without compromising the volume of fruit or its flavor. Bell-like white flowers in spring are followed by supersweet berries in early summer. The foliage has a blue sheen that holds through the heat of summer and turns maroon in fall. Bountiful Blue® is self-fertile but produces even more fruit when paired with another cultivar.
