Blueberry ‘Legacy’ is excellent for southern climates, as it is heat and drought-tolerant. This vigorous variety produces delicious medium-sized berries often used for pies, jams, preserves, and muffins! The fruit quality is excellent and stores well if refrigerated, typically for up to eight days. Blueberries are naturally high in antioxidants and have a high vitamin content.
‘Legacy’ is a beautiful, productive hedge with spring flowering on dark green foliage, delicious fruit in summer, and fiery red foliage for autumn color. It is vigorous, high yielding, and grows upright. In warmer areas where high-chilling highbush blueberries are grown successfully, ‘Legacy’ is recommended as a late mid-season cultivar, ripening after ‘Bluecrop,’ to extend your blueberry season!
