An 'orchard grade' is a tree that may be on the shorter side, may be crooked or with slight damage. These trees will still produce the very same fruit as a first or number 1 will. They may need to be staked and they do need regular watering, fertilizer and protection from weeds and hungry animals. All trees will benefit from pruning.
Medium to large, deep blue fruit with amber flesh. Bluebyrd’s high sugar content enhances its excellent flavour. This vigorous, productive, newer variety shows exceptional black knot resistance making it ideal for both the commercial orchard and the backyard.
