Description

The Jersey blueberry bush is a Northern High bush variety that grows well in the North Eastern US and throughout zones 4 to 7. Northern High bush blueberries do not require cross pollination from another plant because they are self-fertile, ideal if you have limited planting space or are just getting started with blueberries.

Grow your own healthy, organic fruit with the Jersey Blueberry plant. This hardy blueberry offers a heavy yield of plump, delicious blueberries that are packed with vitamins and antioxidants. This variety boasts a large berry, about 1/2 inch in diameter, that is highly resistant to cracking.Pretty and petite, white flowers decorate this attractive shrub in spring. This late season blueberry produces ripe berries in late July to August.This shrub grows 6-8 feet tall and 5-6 feet wide and has dark green leaves. In fall the Jersey Blueberry offers beautiful,fiery foliage from orange to red. Reddish stems offer colorful interest in the bare, winter landscape.

Blueberries enjoy full sun and well-draining, moist, acidic soil. Fertilize with our slow release fertilizer when planting and in spring for best results. Prune in late winter to invigorate your plant. While the Jersey blueberry does not require a pollinator to produce fruit, planting with Blueray or Bluecrop will increase yields through cross-pollination.

Your family will love picking their own berries right off the plant! Get started now! Order your very own Jersey blueberry plant today!

How To Care

When planting your Jersey Blueberry be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your new plant to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant.

Blueberry shrubs thrive in full sun and well-drained, moist, acidic soil. Blueberries grow best in a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. If you have alkaline soil, be sure to amend your soil. To acidify your soil, amend with compost, elemental sulfur. Mulching with pine straw or pine bark will help over time as they begin to break down, but are not an immediate solution. To improve drainage in something like a heavy clay soil, add compost and be sure to loosen up the soil well before planting. Water deeply when planting and 2-3 times weekly for 3 months while your Blueberry plant is establishing. During the growing and fruiting seasons, a blueberry will do best if the soil is kept moist. Adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch is highly recommended for Blueberry bushes. Mulching helps to maintain soil moisture and gives added protection during extreme temperatures. Fertilize when planting and in spring with our balanced, Very Berry fertilizer. Blueberries grown in containers will need fertilized 3 or 4 times per year during the growing season as nutrients leech out of the pot when you water. Prune your Blueberries in late winter to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches and to maintain size. The Jersey blueberry variety does not require a pollinator. However, planting the Bluecrop or Blueray with your Jersey will increase yield by providing cross pollination.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. The biggest pests of blueberries are birds. You can put up bird netting to protect your crop. If positioned properly, this is an extremely effective deterrent. Most insect pests feed on the leaves of blueberries. You can treat most of these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. Blueberry Bushes can occasionally encounter fungal issues. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. The entire shrub must be coated in order for this method to be effective.

Paid for 3-gallon and received 1 gallon

I recently bought a 3-gallon Jersey Blueberry and they sent me a tiny plant with broken stems in a 3-gallon container. I sent them a picture to ask for a replacement or refund. They acknowledged that, based on the picture, it was in fact 1-gallon sized plant. However they will not replace because they said this sometimes happens, and they don’t guaranty the size of the plant that they are shipping. This is probably one of the worst customer experience from an online merchant.

Plant looks healthy with some flowers on it.

It was a very good plant except one of the major branch was bare without any leaves.
