Blueberry - Star (Southern Highbush) #5 Pot
Star differs from other southern highbush cultivars in that it combines a low chill requirement, early fruit ripening, high fruit quality, and a very short harvest period. In contrast to most southern highbush cultivars, Star has a chilling requirement low enough to allow it to be grown as far south as Gainesville, Fla., with no delay in spring budbreak. The fruit of Star are medium to large, averaging about 1.6 grams per berry. Berries are dark blue in color. The small, dry pedicel scar and high firmness give the berries a long post-harvest life. Both flavor and texture are excellent. The medium sized bush has a moderately upright growth habit and have shown moderate resistance to Phytophthora root rot and stem blight. Hardy in Zones 7-10.
USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10
