Product Description

Camellia blueberries are large and excellently flavored, with a lovely, pronounced tropical fruit aroma. The berries will appear in large, tight clusters, with a sky-blue color when dusted with "bloom," the white powdery substance found on blueberries that indicates freshness. Camellia will consistently produce uniform berries from mid to late season, averaging 4.5 to 5 lbs per plant each year for 3-to-4-year-old plants grown in bark beds with irrigation. Keep the birds away from these delicious blueberries with our Bird Netting, which will prevent them from enjoying all the berries before you get the chance! Plant in acidic, sandy, moist soil with lots of organic matter, and be sure to give Camellia access to full sunlight. Zones 7-8.
