CARE INSTRUCTIONS

The O'Neal requires 500-600 chill hours, so choose a spot that acts as a cold pocket. It also requires acidic soil, so make sure to amend the soil with peat moss or sawdust.

DESCRIPTION

The O'Neal Blueberry is an early-yield, low-chill (500-600 hrs) bush that produces one of the best-tasting southern high-bush blueberries. It is self-pollinating but will give larger crops if pollinated with another southern highbush like Misty or Biloxi. The berries are fairly large but will fill out and sweeten even more if left to ripen on the bush. 

As with all blueberries, the O'Neal requires acidic soil.
