Southern Highbush

Zones: 8-10

Chill Hours: 250

Harvest: Mid season.

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

Fruit: Very large, mildly sweet flavored berries.

Facts of note: Emerald yields abundant crops of the largest Southern Highbush berries with a mild, sweet flavor. Its rounded, spreading bush habit make it a great landscape plant. Dependable in southern climates with a low chill requirement of 250 hours. Long harvest period.

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.
