Description

  • Latin Name: Vaccinium corymbosum x
  • Zones: 8-10
  • Chill Hours: 400
  • Harvest: early season
  • Bush Habit: Upright plant growing to about 6-7'
  • Fruit: Large, sweet berries.
  • Facts of note: Star has been a valuable contributor to the growth of the commercial blueberry industry in southern regions for good reason. From a strong, upright growing plant, large berries with pleasantly sweet flavor can now compliment early season bounty in home gardens. Leaves turn yellow in the fall.

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.
