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.

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

Jersey Blueberry Bush FAQ

Is This Blueberry Self Pollinating?

Yes, this blueberry is a self pollinator but adding another variety to pollinate this beauty will result in higher yields for the August ripening season.

Where Should I Plant A Jersey Blueberry Shrub?

Plant in a spot that has full sun exposure and well-draining, moist, acidic soil in grow zones 4-7.

How Often Should I Water This Blueberry Bush?

Water deeply when planting and 2-3 times weekly for 3 months while your plant is establishing. During the growing and fruiting seasons, a blueberry will do best if the soil is kept moist.

Caring for Jersey Blueberry Bush

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.

Planting

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.

Watering

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.

Fertilizing

Fertilize when planting and in spring with our balanced, slow-release 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.

Maintenance

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.

Landscape ideas

The Jersey Blueberry bush makes a great landscape shrub. The size of this bush, its shrub-like habit, and its lush foliage make it a unique landscape specimen. It can be used alone as a focal shrub or planted in a group with other blueberry plants. Planting with other blueberry bushes will increase your fruit yield with cross pollination. The Jersey blueberry bush makes a distinctive, low maintenance hedge you will love to have in your landscape. Combine two needs in one with the Jersey Blueberry bush. You can enjoy tasty, home-grown fruit and fill in your landscape with an attractive plant.
