Very Prolific and High Quality
Northern Highbush, Late Season
Legacy Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum ‘Legacy’) is vigorous and productive grower. This Blueberry came from a cross of ‘Elizabeth’ x US 75 (Vaccinium darrowii, ‘Florida 4B’, x ‘Bluecrop’). It was selected by A.D. Draper, and introduced by the USDA Research Center.
Legacy has been rated as producing the highest flavor fruit overall from the USDA selections.
Legacy produces medium to large-sized, medium blue, firm fruit with a very superior flavor and sweetness. This is an attractive landscape plant and a heavy producer of delicious fruit.
The fruit ripens in August, and when planted with other varieties, extends your Blueberry season. You’ll love the long season for extremely nutritious, high quality Blueberries for fresh eating, baked goods, in preserves or jams, frozen or dehydrated for winter use.
Fruit size is consistently medium to large and very attractive. The fruit is great eaten fresh with fine flavor, firmness and appearance. It also exhibits a long shelf life for storage.
For best fruiting, prune the oldest lower branches in late winter. With this care, these plants are high yielding and very consistent year after year.
The brilliant fall foliage is bright orange and stays on the bush well into the winter. Try this in your landscape as a hard-working, useful, edible screen or hedge.
