Pollinators for the Blueberry - Gulfcoast

Cross pollinate with these Southern Highbush varieties for fruit set

Blueberry - Biloxi

$19.90 ($18.75-$49.00 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 - Misty

$19.90 ($18.75-$79.00 choose a size)

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.

Blueberry - Sharpblue

$17.90 ($17.90-$49.00 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

$27.00 ($18.75-$99.00 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

$21.90 ($18.75-$79.00 choose a size)

Vigorous, upright,self fertile 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.

Also useful in flower arrangements. A low growing plant to 1m with long narrow blade like leaves and woody aerial roots. In tropical climates it can be grown as a marginal plant in dams and ponds, used as a bedding plant in tropical landscaping. Outside of the tropics, well worth trying as indoor plant in winter with a warm, sunny aspect. Allow the plant to dry out over the winter months.

ACACIA RIDGE, QLD, Australia

Happy plant, even though our dog "pruned" it by snapping the tallest branch off that I then tried to propagate as a cutting (it didn't work). At least it will grow back, it is a healthy happy bush even if it is now shorter than the others.

Blueberries are a wonderful fruit full of anti oxidants and have a great flavour. I've planted 3 in pots and they seem to be thriving. The coconut fibre mulch has been great for soil ph and providing nutrients to the plants. They're yet to fruit but ho...
