'Patriot' is a great blueberry choice for gardeners who want their berries as soon as possible. Showy white spring flowers precede large June fruits. At least six hours of sun is a must for best tasting berries, and if you can plant another blueberry variety that blooms at about the same time, the berry production and flavor will be all the better for that. Blueberries are self-pollinating, but the cross pollination results in better yields. 'Patriot' is a fairly large shrub, so give it some room; it will be easier to harvest berries as well!
