What is Jewel Blueberry Bush

The Jewel Blueberry Bush is known not only for its tangy flavor and long harvest period but its ability to produce large yields of juicy fruit all season long! It’s self-fertile and low-maintenance, making it a great option for gardeners of all skill levels.

The harvest of this blueberry bush is very productive and starts early in the season. In fact, the high yields of fruit and little care that goes into growing the Jewel Blueberry Bush make it a top option for many growers. Simply place it in your garden or in a large outdoor container and watch it thrive!

While the Jewel Blueberry Bush is self-fertilizing, you can expect your yields to be even greater with a second blueberry variety planted nearby. The best part? You can even depend on fruit production in mild-winter conditions, as this bush can tolerate shade and has a fairly low chill requirement.

If you’re searching for fresh berries, the Jewel Blueberry Bush has you covered. Hurry and get yours before they’re gone!

How to Grow and Care for Jewel Blueberry Bush

Jewel Blueberry Bush (Vaccinium corymbosum sp.) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 8-10 outdoors
Harvest time Summer - Fall


Plant in an area with well-drained soil and adequate sunlight (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) with some shade and exposure to cooler weather.

When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that is three times the diameter of the plant’s root ball and just as deep. Place the plant into the hole so that surface roots are just below the soil’s line. Fill in the hole with the garden soil, pine bark, and peat moss mixture. Tamp the soil down firmly around the shrub’s roots to remove any air pockets.


Your blueberry should be watered once every 2 to 3 days for the first two weeks. Keep soil moist, not saturated, by using your index finger. Stick it into your soil a couple of inches and feel around for any moisture. If it’s becoming dry, water your bush.


Fertilize your blueberry when the leaves start to develop. Apply one tablespoon of fertilizer made for azaleas such as 10-5-4, 10-8-8 or 11-7-7 in a 12-inch circle around the base of the shrub. Water thoroughly after fertilizing.


Your bush will benefit from being pruned in the late winter to remove dead or crowded branches. To maintain a lower height, prune in the wintertime.
