Southern Highbush

Zones: 6-9

Chill Hours: 500

Harvest: Mid to late season.

Bush Habit: Upright, vigorous bush reaching 5'-6' tall with green foliage in fall.

Fruit: Large, robust flavored berries.

Facts of note: Southmoon is recommended if your customers are asking for exceptional berries. It does especially well in lighter, sandy soils with generous additions of organic matter. This Florida native is performing well in California where chilling hours reach 500. We believe it will become a favorite for Southern gardeners.

Delicious, exceptionally nutritious, high in bioflavanoids. Gardeners in warmer climates can enjoy growing blueberries by choosing one of the Southern Highbush varieties. These require fewer chill hours than the Northern Highbush which require over 1000 hours. 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.

These blueberries are 2 year plants.
