The patriot type grows pretty well. I have a few hundred blueberry plants and the patriot type is my favorite.

Bluecrop and Jersey are good ones to grow in New York State.

Thanks for the info. What is the best way to get them started. These are new to me. I have blackberries and raspberries.

Now is the time to get your soil ready for spring. blueberries need very acid soil from 5 to 6 ph. start them in 30 gallon grow bags. you can buy the soil now at home depot. use sphagnum moss and compost manure.
