Home gardeners as well as market growers will love the berries on this plant. They're large with a gorgeous blue coloring, firm, sweetly flavored and have a wonderful tropical fruit aroma. They're an absolute delight whether eaten fresh, cooked into desserts or made into preserves. Camellia Southern Highbush Hybrid Blueberry consistently produces uniformly large berries. The upright, vigorous plants grow 5-6 ft. tall and require 500 chill hours. While the plants are self-pollinating, they will produce larger crops if grown with other blueberries. Ripens mid to late season. Zones 7-8.
