A versatile blueberry bush that makes a lovely ornamental plant... as well as producing pounds of delicious, healthy Toro blueberries. 

Toro Blueberry bushes are known for being heavy producers... you get buckets of berries every year! 

Even after an extremely cold winter, your Toros will produce tons of sweet berries in mid-July. 

Fantastic as a border or privacy hedge… the Toro boasts delicate white to hot pink flowers in the spring and fiery red foliage in the fall. 

It's even self fertile! It is not necessary to provide a pollinator for the Toro. However, planting another variety of blueberry alongside the Toro will increase berry production. 

These berries are huge! Toro Blueberries are much larger and juicier than typical blueberries you find from the store. 

Plant in rows for the best pollination! Groups of three or five yield the biggest crops of berries! 

And the health benefits! Full of antioxidants, which help reduce the signs of aging. 

These berries are so sweet, it doesn't seem like you're eating healthy... but you are! 

Perfect for northern climates.

It's Easy to Plant your Toro Blueberry

Specific Directions for Toro Blueberry

Your Blueberry bushes will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. The more sunlight that your bushes get, the more fruit they'll produce as long as they are in a well drained area of your yard, that doesn't collect any standing water.

Acidic soil with a pH balance ranging from 4.09 to 5.5 will be best for your Blueberry Bushes. Use a pH meter to measure the acidity of your soil and add sulfur or Peat Moss to increase your soil's acidity level.

Fertilize your Blueberry Bushes early every Spring, as your Bushes emerge from winter dormancy and flower. Midsummer after you harvest your Blueberries fertilize your bushes again. Use an organic fertilizer for an acid loving shrub.

Your Blueberries won't be ready to be picked until their stems appear blue, not red or green. Once your Blueberries are ripe they will be a dusty dark blue color.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Toro Blueberry.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Toro Blueberry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Toro Blueberry again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I planted this toro blueberry last fall. It shed all its leaves during the winter. It's not coming along fast. I think it will survive. There is a few leaves on the branches. It looks strong and hope next year I will get some fruits. Its about 3ft tall.

I ordered the Toro blueberry bushes on a recommendation from my sister who says she loves them! THe arrived in a timely manner and in good condition! I planted them right away and they are growing slowly. There have been no flowers or blueberries this season, but that is not too surprising! I can't wait until they start blooming next year!

The plant came bigger than I expected, and in very good condition. The packaging was almost full proof- it was very wel protected, the soil still quite moist, and there were no broken branches whatsoever. It's grown a bit more since planting, though I haven't seen any blueberries yet. I don't think I'll get any this season, but that's ok.

How many do I have to buy, is it self pollinating?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2014
Best Answer: I don't think they need to be in pairs. I purchased one in 2012 as a Father's Day gift and it wasn't very happy then got a second- they seem to be doing better.
Hope this helps!

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
