Temperate fruit plants grow well in areas with winter frost, and many of them do need frost in order to grow properly. The most popular trees are apples, pears or peaches, but some are quite uncommon and exotic. Many low-growing shrubs produce healthy berries, like blackcurrants or blueberries.
Northland is a vigorous and high yelding blueberry. Fruits are medium-sized and soft, typically held in clusters. They are sweet, with a "wild Blueberry taste". It is better dehydrated. Not the best when frozen.
