Gardeners' Notes:

We have 5 different blueberry plants, Jersey is one of them. I can't say enough positives about this palnt. It is a great producer for at least 6 weeks. Nice sized fruits, very upright. We mulch our blueberries very heavy with pine needles and they simply love it. We were struggling to keep the soil acid enough for them, but the pine needles do the trick.

'Jersey' is an excellent blueberry to plant in conjuction with 'Patriot' for a slightly longer harvest.
Compared to 'Patriot' the 'Jersey' blueberry sets fruit and ripens a little later and the fruits are slightly smaller and sweeter.
The 'Jersey' blueberry bush tends to be taller and more upright with more consistent color in the autumn.
