Brigitta produces good yields of medium-large size berries with a good flavour and medium sweetness. Often described as being late fruiting, but we find that the fruit usually ripens towards the end of July and can be picked until mid August. It's a vigorous variety, growing to 1.5m (5ft), but is also compact in its habit, so is a good choice where space is limited. |
Fruit yields from Brigitta can be high with good pollination and it does appear to be more drought resistant than most varieties (but even so, don't let it dry out!). One notable feature of Brigitta is that the fruit keeps extremely well, up to eight weeks or more in a refrigerator and, like all blueberries, it is excellent frozen.
