Legacy Highbush Organic Blueberry Plant
Introduced in 1993 by the USDA, Legacy has been increasing our number of late season cultivars planted on our farm. This variety is planted commercially in warmer zones (USDA 7-8), as it shows good resistance to stem canker. I have never seen canker here, but we are not in a commercial blueberry production area (where diseases are, of course, more common).
Legacy has always been a robust growing shrub, and is one of my favorites for later season production. I’ve found it to be very reliable even with wayward springs (heatwaves and freezes in less than a weeks time).
Our Legacy plants here at the farm have been at bearing age the past 13 years, and have been very productive. They should top out at 5-6 feet, and ripen just before Chandler (some years they have overlapped nicely). The berries are medium to medium-large sized, and very sweet when ripened on the bush. Mature yield on Legacy is running between 9-10# per bush here at our farm, over the past years. In a 2012 taste trial attended by California blueberry growers (in San Joaquin, CA), Legacy ranked in the top 4 for flavor.
