One of the best tasting blueberries—a favorite from California to the Northeast.
Legacy is a very productive blueberry that produces firm, sweet, aromatic fruit for an extended period in late mid-season. Fruit is large and stores well; plants are vigorous, upright and have good disease resistance. Legacy is one of several noteworthy blueberries from the USDA breeding program.
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.
