Southern Highbush Blueberry

By growing southern highbush blueberry plants, you can enjoy some of the nation’s most commercially popular blueberries fresh from your own backyard. These plants are heat-tolerant, which means they excel in climates with higher average temperatures. Southern highbush varieties thrive in soils with a low pH level, and tend to be more drought-tolerant than their northern highbush counterparts. They ripen a bit earlier in the year (usually in June), when they produce impressive harvests of healthy, delicious blueberries. Plus, these plants are self-pollinating — perfect for small gardens or growing spaces — but will usually yield larger crops if planted near another blueberry variety. These plants may require mulch in winter for protection.
