Blueberry - Misty

Vaccinium spp

Misty blueberry fruits being held up against the hand for size comparison

One of the most attractive Blueberries with bluish green leaves which contrast perfectly with striking pink and white spring flowers. You can get an even bigger harvest when planted with other varieties. Because of low chill hours it is a favorite in the subtropics. The Misty is one of the first varieties to fruit and the size is medium to large. Their flavour is sweet and spicy and perform brilliantly in pots.

Pollinators for the Blueberry - Misty

Cross pollinate with these Southern Highbush varieties for fruit set

Blueberry - Biloxi

$17.90 ($17.75-$79.00 choose a size)

A great choice for hotter climates with very little chill hours. It is often the first variety to hit the markets ripening a few weeks before other early blueberry varieties. The fruit is firm and the size is medium. Even though it fruits early it can often produce a second harvest later in the season although it's first time to fruit yields the best harvest. Best to mix with other varieties so that when this one is not fruiting another variety is.

Blueberry - Gulfcoast

$17.90 ($17.90-$79.00 choose a size)

A low chill high bush variety. Excellent flavour, firmness and good picking scar. A vigorous upright bush with moderate toughness and good tolerance to root rot.

Blueberry - Sharpblue

$17.90 ($17.90-$17.90 choose a size)

Excellent quality large fruit. Very low chill requirements and self-pollinating. A tough and vigorous bush. It has grown well in both sandy soils and heavier loams. The fruit has a wet scar, and is likely to become soft during very hot weather, meaning that it needs to be harvested frequently to overcome this.

Blueberry - Sunshine Blue

$17.90 ($17.90-$49.00 choose a size)

Sunshine Blue has it all. This semi-dwarf, versatile semi-deciduous blueberry features showy hot pink flowers that fade to white in spring, yielding large crops of delicious berries. Sunshine Blue tolerates higher pH soils better than many other blueberries and it is self-fertile. It is is a Southern Highbush with the low chilling requirement of 150 hours makes it suitable for the subtropics, but we find it is surprisingly cold-hardy and a wonderful addition to patios and gardens in cooler areas.

Blueberry - Legacy

$19.75 ($17.75-$79.00 choose a size)

Vigorous, upright, high yielding and very consistent bearer of medium-sized fruit with a very superior flavor and sweetness. Rated as one of the highest flavor blueberries. The quality of the fruit is superior to many cultivars and has long storage time of around 8 days if kept refrigerated. The fresh market is recommended due to the high quality of the fruit flavor. A mid season, medium chill variety that extends the blueberry season! Well suited to most regions of NSW and QLD and in all areas is self fertile.

This variety seems to be more tolerant of our sandy soils here in WA - and I have found it performs the best in our heat and with the slightly limey bore water. It is a Californian bred variety so perhaps that is why. Fruits very well. I apply sulphur ...

Had some really big beautiful juicy blueberries off the Misty and it's still very young. I've started to (with all my blueberries) remove the flowers and concentrate more on plant growth. I've pruned a little several weeks ago and already there is new ...

Still waiting for its first real harvest. Fruited the first season but I had it in full Perth Sun and it got quite burnt and I lost its crosspolinater in the process. Currently looking to put it into a larger both (currently in 30cm pot) and to purchas...

Blueberry - Misty

I have had this Misty variety just growing on it's own for three years now and though it doesn't seem to produce much fruit (I think my 11 year old gets to them way too quick!) they are incredibly delicious in flavour - a real sweet 'blue' taste to them.
