 About Elliott Blueberries Minimize
Elliott is a high yielding Northern Highbush cultivar. Once mature, Elliot should yield 8 to 12 pounds. Of all the Northern Highbushes Elliott is the last to ripen. It typically ripens around August and has a 4 to 5 week harvest period. Once ripe it is acidic and slow to sweeten. Elliott has one of the highest levels of antioxidants of all blueberry varieties. The berries grow in loose clusters and resist cracking. Once picked Elliott has a storage life of up to 12 weeks. Although blueberries are self pollinating the crop will be noticeably better if pollinated by other varieties.
