Ochlockonee Blueberry Bush

The Ochlockonee Blueberry Bush (Vaccinium corymbosum 'Ochlockonee') is a late-season rabbiteye blueberry variety that is known for its large, sweet berries. It is a popular choice for home gardeners and commercial growers alike, as it is relatively easy to care for and produces a heavy crop of fruit.

Ochlockonee Blueberry Bushes can grow up to 6-8 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide. They have a vigorous habit and are covered in dark green leaves. In the spring, the plant produces clusters of small, white flowers. The flowers are followed by medium to large, deep blue blueberries that ripen in the late summer.

Ochlockonee blueberries are known for their sweet flavor and firm flesh. They can be eaten fresh, used in cooking, or made into juice, wine, and jelly. Ochlockonee blueberries are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and antioxidants.

To grow an Ochlockonee Blueberry Bush, choose a spot in full sun with well-drained, acidic soil. Plant the bush 4-6 feet apart. Water the bush regularly, especially during the first year after planting. Fertilize the bush in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.

Ochlockonee Blueberry Bushes are relatively low-maintenance, but they do require some pruning. Prune the bush in the late winter or early spring to remove any dead or diseased branches, and to shape the plant.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
