    I was given 1 blueberry plant, variety unknown but possibly with the word "blue" in it. I only have room for one more blueberry plant. Any suggestions as to what type it should be so that I can grow fruit?

    We did a search for some information regarding cultivars. Numerous cultivars are tolerant to the west-coast strain. Plants that
    remained symptom-free after infection by the west-coast strain include the
    cultivars:
    Bluechip
    Ivanhoe
    Puru
    Bluecrop
    Lateblue
    Rancocas
    Bluegold
    Nelson
    Reka
    Bluetta
    Northblue
    Sierra
    Burlington
    Northcountry
    Sunrise
    Concord
    Northsky
    Toro
    Coville
    Nui
    Washington
    Duke
    O’Neal
    16


    A good one to start with would be Bluecrop.
