Flowering and Fruiting

Blueberries will produce a small crop the third year after planting and will reach full production in about eight years if you follow the recommended pruning strategy. Most cultivars flower in May and the fruit ripens in July, August, or even as late as September, depending on the cultivar.

Blueberries can self-pollinate, but planting two different cultivars increases pollination, berry size, and total harvest. If you only pick two cultivars, don't make one of them a very early variety and one a very late variety. If you do, their bloom times may not overlap. A midseason variety such as Bluecrop is likely to overlap with the flowering of most any other variety.
