Jelly Bean™ ‘ZF06-179’

Jelly Bean™ Blueberry Plants Are A Charming Little Puffball Of A Blueberry But Don't Let Their Dwarf Size Fool You.

These little blueberry wonders are prolific - producing a bumper crop of large, flavorful blueberries mid-summer with super sweet flavor like homemade blueberry jelly. Brilliant green new foliage emerges in spring which gives way to darker greens with red hues throughout the summer and fall.

In cooler climates, summer brings radiant red leaf edges to Jelly Bean™ plants along the sides and tips of its uniquely elongated leaves contrasted by the clusters of blue summer fruit. Try accenting a pathway with a mini-hedge of Jelly Bean™ or use it to set off larger shrub plantings in the landscape or in patio pots. You will absolutely love this distinctive little gem of a blueberry!

Planting & Care Notes:

  • Full sun
  • Acidic soil (incorporate peat moss or organic materials into soil)
  • Good drainage
  • Fertilize early spring with a granular or liquid acid fertilizer (Rhododendron/Azalea blends are perfect.)
  • Moderate watering
  • Prune annually during winter dormancy.

Pruning:  This blueberry produces new canes each spring, but sets fruit on the previous year’s canes. Once fruiting is complete, prune canes that have fruited leaving new canes to fruit the following season. Annual pruning promotes plant growth and berry production.
