Palmetto – Southern Highbush Blueberry
Great things can come in a smaller package and Palmetto proves it! It’s berries may be medium sized, but Palmetto has a truly outstanding flavor. Another great feature of Palmetto is it has a concentrated ripening time – 75% of the berries are ripe in the first two weeks of May. Get those jam and juice jars ready! Released in 2003 by the University of Georgia US Plant Patent 16,756. Ripens early to mid May. 350-450 chill hours. Considered somewhat self fertile, but bears heavier when planted with Camellia.
