Sweetheart Blueberry

Gardeners in Mild Climates Report Two Harvests per Year!


Sweetheart is a unique cross between a Northern and a Southern Highbush variety. This unusual pedigree allows it to produce heavy yields of sweet, juicy berries two times a year in mild climates. An early-season first crop delivers enough plump fruit to satisfy even the most voracious berry lovers. The berries are particularly good in desserts or eaten fresh. A smaller late-summer crop is possible in milder zones. Grows 5-6 ft. tall with a 3-4 ft. spread. Self-pollinating. Zones 4-8.
  • Zone 4-8
  • Height 5-6 ft.
  • Germination 8 - 10 days
  • Light Required Full sun.
