Description

  • Latin Name: Vaccinium corymbosum sp.
  • Variety: Southern Highbush
  • Plant Age: 2 Years
  • Zones: 8-10
  • Chill Hours: 200
  • Harvest: Early mid-season
  • Bush Habit: Upright bush reaching 6 – 8' tall with green foliage in fall.
  • Fruit: Very large, tangy berries.
  • Facts of note: Jewel yields abundant crops of the largest Southern Highbush berries with a tangy flavor. Its upright habit makes it a great landscape plant. Dependable in mild-winter climates because of a low chill requirement. Long harvest period. Plant with other mid-season fruiting blueberries for best performance.

Delicious, exceptionally nutritious, high in bioflavanoids. Consider climate suitability, ripening season and fruit size when selecting varieties and include at least two different varieties for cross–pollination and fruiting (any two varieties will do, regardless of ripening time). Grow in acidic, well-drained soil. Cottonseed meal is an excellent fertilizer for blueberries along with good quality compost and peat moss.

Check out our Fruit Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.

Guarantee

Limited Guarantee for Dormant Trees & Plants (When Planted in the Ground by April 1st)

Claim Deadline is June 1st (with the exception of persimmon trees, which have a deadline of June 15th)! Claims placed after June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees) will be denied.

What We Guarantee
Our only guarantee is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in good, viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th (historically 98% of our trees do). This guarantee is only available to customers who purchased their tree/plant directly from us, and who planted their tree/plant in the ground by April 1st (or temporarily in a pot if the ground in their zone was still frozen solid).

What We Cannot Guarantee
We cannot guarantee that your tree/plant remains alive & healthy, or bears fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control in order to do so (i.e. soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed & pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc).

How to Request a Credit
If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please contact us as soon as possible (but no later than June 1st, or June 15th for persimmon trees) and we will issue you a credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of your tree/plant (excluding shipping).*

(*) We reserve the right to not issue credit for items already replaced. We also reserve the right to require photographic evidence of the condition of your tree/plant and/or a scratch test. The scratch test consists of checking for green under the bark a few inches over the graft (please watch our video titled Bare Root (Dormant) Warranty for more information on this simple procedure). If the scratch test reveals a brown cambium, the tree/plant is dead or dying.

Great Plants

I ordered the Jewel and Emerald Blueberries. They arrived in better packaging than expected and in beautiful condition. I ordered in January and now we are in April and they are growing very well. I have had to pick the flowers off twice now to put all the energy into growing as suggested. I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

Great Price, Branches Broken

Bought this blueberry bush and was very excited to get it. When it finally shipped here I noticed that a couple branches were broken, even though the packaging was in great shape. I think it must have been shipped broken. Also, the roots seemed a bit root bound. It's been 2 weeks, half of the plant has leaves and is doing great, half does not (and these are not the broken branches, since I pruned those off! I think this plant will end up being fine, but I was disappointed!
