Draper Blueberry was developed at Michigan State University and is renowned for its hardiness, ‘Draper’ is an ideal blueberry plant for edible landscaping around the home. Draper has become a standout variety in mid and high-chill climates throughout the West. It has a compact habit, ripens early to mid-season, is highly productive as a young plant, and has outstanding quality fruit. Draper has exceptionally firm berries and concentrates its ripening. The berries have excellent post-harvest color retention and superior shelf life. It is extremely fast to hand-pick and also has the potential to be harvested by machine. After only 3 years in the market, Draper fruit has become a leading choice for both fresh and IQF markets and has also performed well in controlled atmosphere storage.
Care: Blueberries prefer acidic soil (pH 4.5-5.5). Fertilize in early spring with a granular or liquid acid fertilizer. In late winter prune out any dead branches. After harvest, prune non-fruit-bearing branches, leaving new branches to fruit the following season.
Pests & Diseases: Blueberries are not bothered by significant pest or disease problems. Scare birds away with Mylar Flash Tape or deter them by covering your plants with netting. Blueberries like 1/2 day to full sun and well-drained, acidic soil.
Pollination Requirements: Partially self-fertile. Plant two varieties for greater fruit production.
USDA Zone: 3-7
