There exist different varieties of black blueberry that are distinguished by their period of maturation:

Bluetta is a very early variety that produces great harvests although of moderate taste.

Earliblue is a variety of early maturation as well, bearing large fruits of pale blue colour.

Blue Crop matures at the beginning or in the middle of the season, with a large yield of tasteful fruits.

Berkeley and Ivanhoe are varieties of middle season, whereas Colville is a late variety of great yield.

Apart from the common blueberry (black) there are other species belonging to the sort Vaccinium that produce similar fruits. In general, they are not consumed raw; they are used to make cakes, jams, drinks or sauce. Among these fruits we find:
