Description:

This highbush blueberry cultivar has large, tart berries that ripen early on in the season and is known for delivering large consistent crops. It is self polinating, but planting another highbush variety nearby will increase yields. Like all blueberries, it requires acidic soil with good drainage and does not tolerate urban pollution, although Patriot may be a good choice for somewhat wetter soils. It also has strong yellow to red foliage in the fall.
