Jersey Blueberry

Baker's Favorite

  • Medium-sized sweet fruit
  • Grows 6-8 ft. tall
  • Heavy reliable producer
  • Ripens in late July
  • Northern Highbush variety
Rich blue fruit is medium-size and very sweet—a favorite for baking into pies and desserts. 6 to 8 ft. bush is a heavy, reliable producer that tolerates a wide range of soil types and displays orange flame fall foliage. A Northern Highbush, Jersey Blueberry is one of the most widely grown varieties. Northern Highbush blueberries are very popular with home gardeners in the northern United States and Canada. Plant sizes are generally larger and typically have the highest yields. While Jersey is self-pollinating, planting Bluecrop or another Highbush variety will increase yields. Ripens in late July. Plant in full sun. Zones 3-8.
