The Emerald Blueberry is a specially developed form of the southern highbush blueberry, bred to grow well even in very warm areas like Florida and southern California. It needs very few hours of winter cold to grow well, unlike many other types of blueberry bushes. As well, it is vigorous, carrying a heavy crop of large, tasty berries that are bright blue. It will grow well for you in zones 8, 9 and 10, and the first berries can be ready in mid-April. The bushes grow to just 6 feet in height, so they fit well into a smaller garden, or into large planters. Delicious blueberries are best ripened on the bush, and now, even in hot areas, you can do this easily.

  • Produces big, delicious berries in the hottest parts of the country
  • Begin harvesting as early as mid-April
  • Large, well-flavored berries of a rich blue
  • Vigorous bushes that are easy to grow
  • Needs very little winter cold – grows well in Florida

Grow your Emerald Blueberry in acid soil with a pH value below 6.0. If you don’t have this kind of soil, grow them in large pots or boxes, in soil blended for acid-loving plants. Plant in a sunny or partially-shaded spot, and water well at all times. These plants need moisture, but the soil must be well-drained. If necessary, plant on raised beds or low mounds of soil. Mulch with acid composts like peat-moss, pine needles, or grass clippings. Pests and diseases are usually not problems.
