Botanical Name: Vaccinium 'St. Cloud'Introduced in 1990. Plants have a more upright growth habit than 'Northblue', 'Northsky' and 'Northcountry'. 'St. Cloud' grows to about 4 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet in diameter. Mature plants have averaged 7 pounds of fruit over the last 6 years in south-central Minnesota. 'St. Cloud' ripens four to six days earlier than 'Northblue'. The fruit size is about 3/4 as large as that of 'Northblue'. Flavor and firmness is superior to 'Northblue' and similar to 'Northcountry'. 'St. Cloud' must be pollinated by another blueberry cultivar. MNRC (Zone 3-7) Shown to be a reliable choice for home use in zone 3, but will produce larger yields in higher zones.
