Patriot is a robust and high-yielding blueberry bush. It is very resistant to severe winter cold (up to -29°C) and blooms early. Patriot bears large, light blue fruit. These ripen in stages and the quality of flavour is good. Good insect pollination is required. Of the early varieties, Patriot is particularly recommended for the family garden due to its hardiness and its spectacular, vibrant orange foliage in autumn. It is worth noting that this is one of the few varieties that is resistant to phytophthora.
