Are Patriot Blueberries late?

Have meaning to ask this question for a while. My Bluecrop, and Blueray have been supplying ripe berries for a couple of weeks now, but my 2 year old container Patriot is definitely behind. Only a couple of ripe berries so far. Not a very big bush, but has been basically stagnant for a couple of months. Has recently shown signs of pushing new growth but the berries are paralyzed. Will post a photo tomorrow, not home now.

I noticed mine ripened early. I still have one plant not ripe, but they will be soon. Berries are turning. It's been a strange year, I would not think much about it.

RE: Are Patriot Blueberries late?

Patriot is an early berry. Sounds like yours might actually be Elliot.

OK, thanks. Mine are just starting to ripen. The plant/foliage has a unique look to it. I'll post a photo and maybe it will be identifiable.
