It has sweet, firm berries, delicious for baking! This variety is one of the most vigorous, and high yielding Southern Highbush varieties, making it an excellent choice for southern climates.

Like all blueberries, they must have moist, acidic soil to flourish. Set plants out as early as possible in the spring. Prune branches back about 1/2 their length at planting time with no further pruning required the next 3 years. Prune annually thereafter during the dormant period.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Prefers an acid soil. In alkaline soil, add ammonium sulfate for best results. Prepare the ground well before planting. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Add generous amounts of peat but no fertilizer when planting. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Blueberries can also be grown in large pots and containers, if some compost is used. Prune in winter, cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring, feed with sulfate of ammonia, sulfate of potash, bonemeal, and top-dress with compost.

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems. You can protect fruit from birds with netting.
