Description: Early to fruit, the medium-to-large, sky blue berries are spicy sweet.

Plant with other varieties for better yield. 'Misty' has a low chill requirement of 300 hours, and so is recommended for warmer climates as well as cooler areas to zone 5. "Chill requirement" refers to the accumulated annual hours of temperatures a plant experiences between freezing and 45 F that is required to break dormancy. With all blueberries, Misty requires acidic soil.
