Jewel Blueberry Plants are sturdy shrubs that reach sizes of 5 to 8 feet tall, and 4 to 5 feet wide. They do best in USDA Zones 4 to 9, and only need 200 chill hours (hours below 45º Fahrenheit) to grow their large, slightly tart blueberry crops. The Jewel Blueberry Bushes can also tolerate light frost as well as hot summers. The plants are easy to grow and maintain, and are considered a hardy blueberry that is great for both commercial and home growing.
Jewel Blueberry Plants have become popular with edible landscapers due to the large berries that are tangy, juicy, and have just the right amount of sweetness. The bushes like full sun, well-drained acidic soil, and medium watering. The gourmet Jewel Blueberries freeze well and are ideal for eating fresh, baking, making smoothies, or for use in preserves like jams or jellies. Blend Jewel Blueberry Plants into your edible garden as hedges, borders, or as centerpieces among lower plants like herbs or edible flowers.
