Early Summer Fruit!
Southmoon Blueberry, Vaccinium x 'Southmoon', is a southern highbush variety of blueberry bush. Plant one in a sunny location where it will receive at least 6 hours of full sun exposure each day. A few in your side yard would create a delightful, little orchard or plant just one near your patio where you can easily watch your fruit ripen.
Your Southmoon Blueberry begins the season with delicate, bell-shaped flowers in spring, their pink-tinted, white beauty an enchanting contrast against the green foliage. It’s not long before these unique blossoms transition into delicious fruit, the large berries ready for harvest already in early summer.
The blue berries have a firm texture with a complex flavor that is both juicy and sweet, perfect eaten right off the tree (or used in a multitude of culinary delights). If you find your bounty is too great, leave a few berries on your Southmoon to delight the various wildlife that are sure to come in for a taste.
Southmoon Blueberry is a perennial shrub that will grow up to 6 feet in height with an equal spread. It has an upright growth habit and a moderately vigorous nature. Southmoon works particularly well in warmer climates due to its low chill requirement (it requires 500 chill hours), and will even tolerate light frost. It’s self-pollinating so you can try just one to start out with, but it will provide a better yield with other blueberry bushes nearby. Southmoon is a relatively hardy bush, and you can expect it to bear fruit within 2-3 years.
Blueberries are always a lot of fun to have in the home landscape. They’re not only beautiful and fruitful, but also provide a harvest that has incredible health benefits for the entire family. Southmoon Blueberry is a terrific choice in a blueberry bush that will provide you with all the fun and benefits of having your very own blueberry bush right in your own yard. Try one today!
