The Best for Hot, Humid Climates!

Needs only 150-200 chill hours.
Sharpblue has been a favorite for decades in warm climates, both for its heavy, early production and for the rich, full flavor of its dime-sized berries. Hardy all the way through zone 10 in the south, it's nearly evergreen and a dependable choice in a wide variety of cliamtes.

Sharpblue is a Southern Highbush, needing only 150 to 200 chill hours of winter to produce generous crops of light blue, wonderfully sweet and juicy berries. Production begins in late spring in most climates, continuing for 6 weeks, with the heaviest cropping in the first few weeks.

Introduced by the University of Florida in 1976, Sharpblue is the one to grow in climates where spring is short and warm, winters are brief, and summer weather is unpredictable. It stands up to disease wonderfully and doesn't mind humidity. You can't go wrong with Sharpblue!

Homegrown blueberries are an indescribably rich, delicious treat, and not at all difficult to grow. The compact shrub is semi-upright, so you can train it against a fence or other support to encourage best flowering and fruiting, or let it ramble a bit for a more wild, natural look. It is self-pollinating, so you needn't worry about planting it alongside other varieties. Zones 7-10.
