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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
