We consider Northland to be the all round best choice for colder regions. It is extremely productive, with yields at least double that of the half-high varieties such as Chippewa and proven winter hardiness down to -35°C. In addition, the branches are limber enough not to break under heavy snow loads. Small to medium size, dark blue berries are sweet, with enough tangy wild berry taste to make them very flavourful. Vigorous, spreading bush usually tops out at 100-120cm (3½-4').
