Sharpblue Early Season Blueberry

Vaccinium corymbosum 'Sharpblue' (Southern Highbush)

SKU
02176
Considered one of the best varieties for Southern regions. Produces well in areas that receive only 200 hours of winter chill. Remaining nearly evergreen in mild climates, this attractive, upright shrub produces early in the season, often continuing to bloom and set excellent dark blue, medium-sized fruit over an extended period.
