Why plant Jelly Bean® Blueberry?

A jelly belly full of blueberries! In July, enjoy masses of blooming berries on this compact shrub, perfectly sized for a patio container on your summer deck or in garden beds. This low maintenance plant features dainty white bell flowers in mid-spring, adding a touch of pink for a sunkissed glow - bursting into an abundance of berries for its dwarf size, and a sweetness like handfuls of jelly beans! When autumn comes around, and all berries have been enjoyed, the glossy foliage gives way to an outstanding crimson red color. Bushel and Berry® Jelly Bean® Blueberry may be small but is packed full of beauty and deliciousness!

Jelly Bean was born in 2006 under the reference name of ‘ZF06-179’ created by David Brazelton and Adam Wagner of Fall Creek Farm & Nursery, Inc. This fun blueberry is a cross between Vaccinium corymbosum and Vaccinium angustifolium that were placed into a special breed program. During the breeding process, two of Brazelton and Wagner’s other varieties, ‘Top Hat’ and ‘Polaris’, were used to create the Jelly Bean Blueberry that we know today. Jelly Bean was patented in 2014 and is ideal for home gardeners.

How to use Jelly Bean® Blueberry in the landscape?

Blueberries have never tasted so good! Jelly Bean blueberries are like snacking on fresh, homemade blueberry jelly just in fruit form. A very yummy fruit that you'll want to plant everywhere! The foliage is just as unique as the berries, as the leaves are elongated and deep green. Cooler climates may see lines of reds highlighting the leaves as well. A great addition as a hedge, or lining a border, this blueberry will good great anywhere without being unsightly.

How To Plant Jelly Bean® Blueberry

Acid soil is key to growing Blueberries successfully. These peat-loving Accents require very low–pH conditions in order to thrive. If your soil isn’t naturally acidic, you may want to grow Jelly Bean Blueberry in a large container or raised bed. Give it all-day sun if possible and use lots of organic matter—both as a soil amendment and as mulch.

How To Water

Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water very slowly and very thoroughly. The water needs to reach to the bottom of the root ball and that takes time. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

As your Blueberry matures, you should thin your plant by about 1/3 by removing the older canes - this will allow new branches to fruit the following year.
