Start blueberry season off with large, high-quality, flavorful berries. O'Neal Southern Highbush Blueberry Plant is one of the earliest ripening southern highbush varieties. The large berries are of excellent quality and are tops for fresh eating as well as baked into pies or other desserts. This plant will often start blooming in the fall in the southern half of zone 8 and into zone 9, and continues blooming during warm periods until normal bloom time. The main crop ripens in late April to May. The plants grow 6 ft. tall and, while self-pollinating, produce larger yields when other blueberry plants are planted for cross pollination. Zones 7-9.
