Question & Answer
are they non gmo? From: BUDERIM QLD
Yes all the plants we sell are not GMO. #CategoryStrawberry2335 #BlueberryLegacy2704
Will this one fruit in South Australia? From: WAITPINGA SA
This will depend on your chill hours. If you don't get many frosts or have low chill hours then look for ones with a description saying low chill. If you do get quite a few frosts then look for ones that don't say low chill. However what will make you get a better harvest and blueberry size is having different varieties as they benefit greatly from cross pollination. I would give Legacy a go the taste and size of this fruit is exceptional when mixed with other varieties. #CategoryBlueberry1371
