When your plant matures, it will be approximately 12 - 24" tall x 12 - 24" wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these plants 2 - 3' apart to ensure room for growth.

I have wanted to plant blueberry bushes for a long time. These give me the option to have them close to the house without having them in the hard clay soil that is all around my foundation. The other option was to plant them in "the back 40" but then i would have to watch that the deer did not eat everything off the bushes in my
patch. I have vegetable gardens that are 4' x 12' raised beds. The variety in my own yard is what I have always wanted!

Sandra P on Aug 1, 2019
I chose this plant because it is described as growing only to a maximum of 2 feet tall. I also like that I can keep it in a pot. I have a difficult spot to put a plant and this height plant in a pot will be perfect.

Can plant in a pot and is self pollinating
Denise b on Jul 12, 2019
This line of plants has been especially good for me in the hot southwest. I currently have been enjoying the peach sorbet one and wanted to add to my collection. This hopefully will increase my yield when paired with my others and I don't want to have to ever buy from the grocery store again because the flavor and texture of the one I have right now is superb.

How quickly do they grow? How much sooner will the gallon produce fruit?
Darleen R on Feb 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Our Brazelerries will typically take 1-2 years to reach maturity and bear fruit. The small gallon container can reach maturity approximately one season sooner than the quart size container.
I live in zone 6, can I leave the jelly bean blueberry bush outside in the pot all year?
Chris G on Jun 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I too live in zone 6, and I leave mine outside in their containers in a sheltered north-facing area. If it gets extra-cold, like into single digits, I do bring them inside my unheated garage.
How many blueberries can I expect from one jelly bean blueberry plant?
Lisa C on Jun 3, 2017

I am in zone 4. What should I do to "winterize" these container jellybean brazelberries?
wildething on Oct 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry! If grown in a container, you can bring this plant inside an unheated shed or garage during the winter while it is dormant.
Do these do best grown in pots?
SuseyQ on May 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Their size is highly suitable for growing in containers, but you can certainly grow them in the ground if you prefer.
Might be a silly question but do you pick them when they are blue? They were tart
Jan S on Jul 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sounds like you picked them too early. The darker they get the sweeter they tend to be. I???m in zone 6b and mine are blue but not ready to be picked yet. Good rule of thumb is to try one and see where it???s at prior to picking them all. If it???s tart leave them for a while.
which type of blueberries are good for zone 9?
Barb K on Jul 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Sunshine, Misty and Jubilee will all do well in Zone 9.
What are good companion pollinators for jelly bean and patriot blueberries?
juliegrace on Mar 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You can just plant two of the same variety. Blueberries pollinate differently than fruit trees and don't require a different variety. If you'd like something different, choose a late bloomer like Herbert for the Jelly Bean and a mid-season bloomer like Bluecrop or Blueray.
I've got a blueberry bush I purchased last spring and let it winter outside next to the house under the overhang and it did ok. I need to re-pot it and don't know of I should wait until spring or do it now before winter. It'l be outside again this winter?
Joe M on Oct 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Joe. The test should be if the pot is root-bound. If that's why you need to re-pot it, it's best to do it now or the plant will suffer additional stress over the cold months. It's a great idea to keep it under your overhang to give it some kind of shelter.
I am in 5B. Bought 2 gal bushel and berry for outside deck. How can I overwinter it?
Jean S on Jun 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In your zone, you'll need to move it to an unheated garage or shed for the winter and insulate it with a tarp or old blanket. When temperatures are consistently in the 50s, you can bring it back outside. Be sure to give it a good drink of water at the end of fall and when you bring it back outside again.
I purchased one of these plants last year and so far it has not grown any leaves, is it dead? I loved this blueberry plant last year and have been hoping it would start growing soon
Melzor3 on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The first thing to do is check the soil pH. If it's not between 4.5 and 5.0, that's why it's not growing. You will need some soil acidifier and some blueberry fertilizer to keep the soil pH low.
Can these be planted in self watering planters?
Michele on Feb 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. I am attaching a link to some great information regarding planting blueberry plants in containers. You will find the information under the header, "Container-Growing." // Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. A self-watering container would work just as well as one you would manually water.
I purchased a jellybean and sunshine, do recommend growing them in the same planter or separate planters?
Ayana D on Apr 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Separate planters would be best for the plants. Sunshine Blue gets somewhat larger than Jelly Bean, so, unless they're planted at least 3 feet apart, there may be issues with crowding and shading.

Brazel Berries
They are putting out theirs 1st leaves now. Pots are the way to go if you need PH-7 in the Dallas Area. I strongly recommend a self watering pot or system. Because of their small size I am using this plant for a second floor balcony Garden. Hope to know more by next spring.
Had great luck with the raspberry from their line. It is getting transplanted this year into a larger pot. Will be making a great pot accent for the front drive up. Buy the way this is taking Morning and noon sun. Looking forward to trying more in the Line.

Jelly Bean Blueberry/want more
I planted several jelly bean blueberry plants last spring, I just checked on them today....they are all leafing out and have small flower buds starting as well...I'm hoping for a few berry this year....I am very satisfied with them....I do have some large blue berry bushes which seem to be a little slower to leaf out then these little guys.. I will be purchasing a few more to fill in an area near my espalier apple trees....

Slow growth
The plants arrived looking very healthy and ready to grow further. However, was very disappointed that they sat stagnant all summer long. Grew very little even into fall. Hoping that now that they have been in the ground a full year, they will start growing and producing.

Best looking plant ever!
Okay, These blueberry bushes showed up as green as green gets. They were pruned perfectly. I have them in large decorative pots. This is my second year having them! They have flowers! This means blueberries are soon to come! I had fear of ordering online because of past experiences with other companies, not to mention you can not see what you are getting. It was a good price and not much of a risk. Turns out, not a risk at all. They were the best looking blueberry bushes I had ever seen! I look at a lot of plants, and I have 5 blueberry bushes. These by far were the healthiest looking plants, I had even laid my eyes on!! And they are mine !!! Yes!!!

Slow start but doing great now!
This blueberry showed only a little growth last year, never really filling the pot. However, it made it through an unusually tough Winter and has already grown more this Spring than all of last year, with blossoms and the promise of future fruit.

Not happy
Blueberry plant has been in the ground in a sunny location. It has barely grown at all and hasn’t produced a single berry. Very disappointed. I really thought it was going to be great but it hasn’t been a winner

Response from Stark Bro's
I am very sorry that you are having issues. Blueberry plants are at their best when growing in acidic soil. They prefer soil with a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. If your soil is not acidic enough consider adding Soil Acidifier.
