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 an open picking scar, and is likely to become soft during very hot weather, meaning that it needs to be harvested frequently to overcome this. A great back yard variety

Blueberry - Sunshine Blue

$19.90 ($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.

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.

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.

Good looking plant producing very large blueberries. Not as sweet as Backyard Blue, but still very tasty and well worth growing. Recommended.
