Description

  • Latin Name: Vaccinium corymbosum sp.
  • Zones: 5-10
  • Chill Hours: 300
  • Plant Age: 1.5 years
  • Harvest: Early-season
  • Bush Habit: Upright, spreading bush reaching 4-6' tall with blue green and burgundy foliage in fall.
  • Fruit: Medium large, sweet, spicy flavored berries.
  • Facts of note: Misty is one of the most attractive, vigorous and high yielding Southern Highbush varieties. The bright blue-green foliage provides a perfect contrast to the pink and white spring flowers and sky blue summer fruit. Yields best when planted with other varieties. Chilling needs are very low at 300 hours, but don't hesitate to plant it all the way to Seattle. One of the most popular varieties in California because of fast growth, high yields, consistent quality.

Delicious, exceptionally nutritious, and 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.
