Bakers love the medium-size, sweet-tasting Jersey Jumbo blueberry, since its rich blue berries are a perfect choice for tarts, muffins and coffee cakes&em;or simply eating fresh off the bush. It produces long, loose clusters of small to medium, light blue berries that are deliciously juicy. It's no wonder Jersey Jumbo is one of the most widely grown varieties of blueberry around! The bush grows 6-8' tall in a wide range of soil types, always producing heavy, reliable crops. In the fall, its beautiful waxy, deep green foliage turns a brilliant orange-flame color, making it a beautiful ornamental. Ripens in late July. Zones 3-8. 18-30" bareroot.
