Item added to cart!

Georgia Gem Highbush Blueberry is a vigorous upright bushy deciduous shrub with good production of firm, medium-sized sweet and tangy blueberries that ripen early to midseason.   The elliptical dark green foliage turns shades of yellow-orange in fall. The white flower clusters bloom in spring.  Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  While it can self fruit Georgia Gem should be planted with others to cross-pollinate to increase yield.
