How tall are the O'Neal blueberry bushes when they come? What is the difference in the 2 containers offered?
Lindsay on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you buy the small container they are about 4-5 inches tall. You would be better off buying the one gallon size. They are further along and more than a foot tall, and they cost more. My four plants are a year old and about 18 inches tall.

O'Neal Blueberry Plants
My wife and I own and manage a small organic blueberry operation out of which we retail fresh blueberries in season through a local farmers market. Among the cultivars that we market (Duke, Bluecrop, Bluegold, Jersey, Chandler, O'Neal, and Reveille), our customers consistently ask for O'Neal blueberries because of their superior taste. Consequently during the past two years, we have purchased O'Neal blueberry plants from Stark and have been very pleased with their quality. Our only regret is that these plants are not organically certified.
