Vaccinium x 'Emerald'

Emerald is an excellent choice for warmer regions, because the newer Southern Highbush varieties, developed primarily by University of Florida, only require 200+ chilling hours to produce solid yields of very large blueberries. A newcomer, released in 1999, this variety provides long, tight clusters of berries along the uprights. The berries do not ripen uniformly, which gives you an extended harvest season!

Attractive evergreen bushes need little pruning to maintain good form and large size. Berries with excellent flavor ripen early (May or June) in the south and California, midseason (mid-July to August) in the Northwest. Yields increase greatly with pollinizers like O'Neal, Star

Cold Hardy to USDA Zone: 8

Mature Height:  5'-6'x 4'-5'(Large)

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: Early Midseason/July - August

Pollination: Partially Self Fertile - Benefits from another Southern Highbush variety

Ask a Question
  • What is another southern type blueberry for cross pollination?

    Emerald is a Southern Highbush, which is a Rabbiteye x Northern Highbush hybrid, and is pollianted by other Northern Highbush blueberries.

  • Are the berries tart or sweet

    Sweeter than not.

  • I read that Emerald blueberries need another variety to do well. What would you suggest I plant with it? I am in Alabama zone 8a to 7b. Thanks!

    Emerald is pretty self fertile, but if you want cross pollination you will need another Southern highbush blueberry. Rabbit-eye blueberries are not compatible.

Beautiful healthy blueberry plant

The blueberry came in a box along with Tayberry plants. I have ordered plants from other nurseries but I would have to say that Raintree nursery plants were healthy, thriving, and green. They were the best that I have seen. I will definitely order again when the need comes. I’d highly recommend them to anyone!!
