A nutritional powerhouse, blueberries are the perfect addition to cereal, pancakes, muffins, cobblers and salads. Plant several varieties so you can harvest them all summer long.

Brightwell: Offers big, sweet berries in the spring and rich red foliage in the fall. Delicious right off the bush or in a fruit salad, the firm, flavorful fruit also makes great jam and jelly. Fruits in early June. Duke: Among the cold-hardy highbush blueberries, Duke is a standout, both for the quantity and the quality of its fruit.

O'Neal: A three-season beauty, this variety has snowy white spring flowers and grey-green summer foliage that flashes to vivid shades of red in the fall.
