Legacy is both a vigorous grower and heavy producer. It keeps many of its leaves through mild winters, offering a very different look in the landscape. Foliage turns crimson in cold winters. Berries are medium to large in size and with strong, unique flavor. Northern highbush blueberries require 800 to 1000 chill hours to set fruit.
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.
