Southern Highbush that thrives under adverse conditions.
Jubilee, a Southern Highbush developed in Mississippi, thrives well under adverse conditions - heavy soils, summer heat and sudden winter cold. Recommended throughout areas in the South and California with at least 500 chilling hours. Very productive, bearing large clusters in mid season.
Plant blueberry plants in a sunny to partially shaded area, in a well-drained, very acidic soil, with a pH of 4.2-5.2. Plant at least two different varieties for cross pollination. Set blueberry plants 4-8 feet apart (3 feet apart for hedges).
As fruit ripens, cover blueberry plants with netting to deter birds. Pick fruit promptly to discourage insects.
