Nelson Highbush Organic Blueberry Plant
2 gallon size potted plant
Nelson is a late, mid-season blueberry bush that yields sweet, very large berries that are firm and juicy. It is also very cold hardy, growing well into USDA zone 3. Nelson must be planted in a pure mix of sphagnum peat moss with shredded pine bark mulch or mini-nuggets to thrive. Local soils, unless one lives in blueberry country, are too challenging for Nelson to perform well. But we have had great fortune with it here in the peat mix. Nelson grows to 6 feet tall, yielding 10-13 pounds of fruit a season at maturity (8 years old). Developed by the ARS-USDA as a cold hardy, large fruited berry with excellent flavor.
Hardy in USDA zones 3-7.
