- High-bush type cultivar.
- Height is 5-7 feet, upright and slightly spreading.
- Ripening date is September 1 in the South Haven, Michigan area.
- Yields are consistently high, 10-20 pounds per bush at maturity.
- Fruit size is small to medium averaging 75 berries per cup.
- Quality of the berry is very firm and has no picking scar. The berry is light blue and has a good mild flavor when fully ripe. The flavor is very tart until 60 percent of the berries are ripe.
- Harvesting can be done by hand or mechanically. Elliott adapts very well for mechanical harvesting because the berries ripen simultaneously so that 70-80% of the berries can be picked at one time.
- Marketing of the fruit is for fresh or process. The Elliott berry is the best quality and colored berry at this time of the year so it is a very good cultivar for the fresh market.
- Ornamental use is very good because of its upright growth habit, bluish-green leaf color and late blooming flowers. Fall color is orange-red and long lasting. Hardiness Zones 7a-4b.
