Special Attributes

Legacy Highbush Blueberry is a late mid-season, heavy producer of attractive, medium to large light blue berries that have excellent flavor. The plant is vigorous, and its attractive green foliage turning to deep red in fall makes it a fine selection for use in the edible landscape. Legacy is self-pollinating (self-fertile), so there's no need to plant other blueberry varieties for cross pollination or berry production. That said, using a pollinator plant will increase berry size, and yield. 

Origin

Legacy originated from a a cross of Elizabeth x US 75 (Vaccinium darrowi, Florida 4B, x Bluecrop) made at Beltsville MD by Draper and was selected in 1976 in Weymouth. Legacy is one-fourth V darrowi, a low-chilling species native to southeastern United States




Cultural Preferences

Blueberry plants grow best in an acidic (pH of 4.8 to 5.2), organically rich, moist, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. The more sun the better for best berry production. The shallow, fibrous roots of blueberry plants like a consistently moist but well-drained soil which can be provided by with a layer of organic mulch. Although blueberries are self-fertile, cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop (larger berries and larger yields). Therefore it is best to plant more than one variety that will bloom at the same time. Blueberry season can be extended by planting early, mid-season and late varieties. Make sure to plant two different cultivars/varieties for each season. USDA Zones: 7b-10b  Find Your Zone >
