Heat tolerant blueberry

Blueberry, The Southern Collection. The best varieties for Southern climates. This collection offers 90 days of harvest from three southern highbush blueberries with low chill requirement: Misty (300 chill hours), Jewel (200 chill hours) and Sunshine Blue (150 chill hours). These varieties have been bred for heat tolerance and low winter chilling, and are well adapted to warmer areas of California, the Sunbelt and the southeast. Mostly self-pollinating, plants benefit from being planted close enough to cross-pollinate, to yield larger berries. Chill requirement refers to the accumulated hours of temperatures a plant experiences between freezing and 45 F that is required to break dormancy. http://bit.ly/1BZawuO
