Produces 2 Big Crops a Year - Spring & Fall

Two Growing Seasons Each Year
This Sweetheart Blueberry has everything going for it-especially the fact that it can deliver TWO harvests each year under most conditions. A large bounty of fist-sized clusters arrives in late May or June and the second one in August-yielding around 15 pounds of blueberries per year. 

Big Sweet Berries 
This bush will produce medium to large sized plump, sweet blueberries. The perfect hybrid of Southern and Northern Highbush varieties, the fruit is amazingly juicy, yet firm. If you like to bake blueberry muffins and make blueberry pancakes, you're likely to think you're using a new recipe.  The texture plus their flavor make them a favorite for cooking, and they are a delicious snack picked right off the bush.

Striking Ornamental Bush
The berries are a unique "powder blue" and draw attention to this bush, but its flowers are equally impressive.  Each spring, gorgeous, uniquely shaped white blooms emerge and fill the branches.  Plant as a stunning ornamental addition to your yard, patio planter or garden.

Sweetheart Blueberry Bush Pollination


Sweetheart Blueberry Bush are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

I recently purchased one of these from FGT and was quite disappointed in the way it was shipped. I had read reviews on other plants on how great things were packaged, so perhaps I just had an isolated experience. My Sweetheart Blueberry arrived with the additional bag of potting mix I purchased thrown on top of it inside of the tree box. It is a small plant, and only had two skinny branches growing off of it so far, and the weight of the bag mix had snapped off one of the main branches. I planted the remaining part of the bush, and so far it seems to be doing ok. It has a couple of bits of new growth showing, although I think it will be sometime before I am able to review how the berries produce and taste. For the price I think I was just expecting a fuller bush and better handling of the plant when packaged

We bought 4 blueberry bushes and they came as a stick with a little leaves on it! Not that pleased about it! I was reading reviews one said that theirs came with blueberries already on it. We will be lucky if we have fruit next year.

Very healthy plant and lot of berries
I ordered one 1-gallon size sweetheart blueberry last year; I live in New Jersey and we had a real long and cold winter, two large size blueberry bushes I ordered from other nursery died, however this sweetheart blueberry survived, growing very well, produced a lot of flowers followed by berry fruits! best of all, it does not attract insects or animals, very healthy with large beautiful leaves and is maintenance free. I will order a few more sweetheart blueberries from FGT

Overpriced for what I got!
I was quite disappointed in the 1 gallon size plant I got. I got a gallon of dirt and a 6" stick! I am hoping it will do something.

I have purchased other products from this sight and have been quite happy but not so much with this.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Sweetheart Blueberry Bush


Sweetheart Blueberry Bush Planting Diretions

The Blueberry is a deciduous shrub. The leaves are spirally arranged, narrow, and start out red bronze in the spring only to develop into a dark-green. The flowers of the Blueberry are white, and bell-shaped. The fruit is a berry, which is dark blue to black, and has a thin wax coating.

Seasonal information: Blueberries are grown as an ornamental plant for its fall colors, typically bright orange or red. It is also a highly regarded "super food", containing beneficial vitamins and nutrients.

Location: When selecting a site to plant your Blueberry bush, make sure the site has full sun and drains well. The plant grows best in moist soil, not in soggy soil. Blueberry plants require acidic, well-draining soil. When planted in soils with a pH higher than 5.5, blueberry plants do not absorb nutrients adequately and become more susceptible to disease. Blueberry plants contract moisture-related diseases when exposed to humid conditions or standing water.

Planting instructions: Dig a hole with the shovel that is about twice the size of the root ball of the bush. Make sure the hole is the same depth as the container it comes in. When planting more than one blueberry bush, dig holes that are at least five feet apart in rows that are 10 feet apart. Amend the soil from the hole with peat moss. Make sure to thoroughly mix the peat moss with the soil from the hole. Place the Blueberry bush in the hole. Cover the roots with soil-peat moss mix.

Watering: Your blueberry bushes will need to be watered regularly to make certain that the root system becomes well established. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of both over or under watering.

Fertilization: You do not need to fertilize the Blueberry bush at the time of planting. Fertilize the Blueberry bush twice a year, once in the spring and once after harvest.

Weed Control: Hand-pull weeds near the blueberry shrubs. You can damage the shallow root system with garden tools.

Pests and Disease: Blueberries grow best in acidic soil and are subject to few pests and diseases. If maintained with mulching, the berries can handle temperatures as low as 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Blueberries can mature to the height of three to six feet with a width of up to three feet. The plant has few insect or disease problems; however, birds and squirrels are prone to eating them.

Pruning: Blueberries require only minimal pruning. Lower limbs can be thinned out to keep the fruit from touching the soil, and excessively vigorous upright shoots can be thinned out several feet from the ground to keep the center of the bush open, and to keep the bearing surface within reach. Spindly, weak, or dead branches should be thinned out annually during the dormant season.

Pollination: Blueberries are self-fertile. However, you can plant 3 or more of the same variety to achieve maximum fruiting. Honeybees are inefficient pollinators, and carpenter bees frequently cut the corollas to rob nectar without pollinating the flowers. Blueberries do best when pollinated by buzz pollination by bees, such as the native southeastern blueberry bee.

All of my purchases today are long term investments which will pay me back season after season all the way up until I sell my house where I will hopefully have some added valuation due to having established fruit bearing trees, bushes, and plants on the property. As you guys definitely know, there is nothing like going out back and grabbing some fresh fruits or vegetables.. these are just another addition to living off my land and controlling the quality of what goes in my body.

The descriptions assure me, that I can place them into my environment and be reasonably assured of success in their growth, and productivity. It's also nice to see that they care to offer insurance (at an affordable price) to cover a years time.

A shopper on Jun 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I planted two plants in large pots with the proper mix of acidic soil and mulch. They are both growing like crazy, and I have already ate the first few berries from them. Both have new shoots growing and look very healthy!
Is this self-pollinating? Or do I have to purchase 2-3 plants for them to pollinate.
Siobhan on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: NO! that is the great thing about this Blueberry... It is completely self-pollinating, no need for multiple varieties.
will this variety keep it's leaves all year?
karen on Apr 23, 2015

Do Deer eat this blueberry bush? I have a lot of deer roaming through my yard day and night.
Janice S on Jun 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I must admit I am not totally sure about that variety but our deer do not seem to bother the blueberries we have. We are in the mountains of western N.C.with a lot of deer. They love out tulips and hostas but the blueberries do not appear eaten - -yet. Hope this helps.
if I order now, when can I expect it to bear, and would this time of year be ok?
Brenda P on Jun 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These plants produce fruit in the early Spring. Blueberries mature and are harvested mid summer. Existing fruit may fall off of the plant in transit, so you would most likely have fruit next summer. If temperatures aren't scorching hot you can plant Sweetheart Blueberry bushes now, but if temperatures are consistently in the 90's it will be better to wait until the early Fall when it cools off.
When is the best time to plant blueberries?
Ann M on Oct 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine in February. Got blueberries in March.

Will this plant be okay to grow in Zone 9 if potted in a large container that will be in partial sun?
1FlaGirl on Aug 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is not recommended for a zone 9 and this particular blueberry does prefer to be planted in the ground. I would suggest trying a BrazelBerries Peach Sorbet blueberry bush.
Living in Ohio, i have mine planted in a pot. Do you bring it inside over winter our leave it outside? If left outside, do you continue to water it throughout the winter?
Steven C on May 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Steven, I live in Utah (Salt Lake City) and I planted my blueberry plant in the ground. It faces east and receives the full sun for a majority of the day. And, because it is in the ground I leave it outside all winter. We receive a lot of snow usually so I do not water mine over the winter, it goes dormant in the winter and comes back in the spring. I have had my plant for two seasons now and it has not produced any fruit (last summer it was close). I am hoping the third season is the charm. Good luck!
Will only one of these blueberries produce fruit?
Billie P on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought 2 plant only because I was looking to harvest more blueberries. I planted them last fall pretty close to each other for polluniation. I do not expect to collect blueberries perhaps till next year 2019. The plants were very healthy when we got them and are growing big.

Frank on Jan 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A berry bush needs to be at least 2 years old to produce berries.
What variety will pollinate Sweetheart's TWO flowerings? Presumably, I'd need 2 other varieties to get 2 crops!
Christa L on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Since this is the fist blueberry to produce 2 crops a year, it is best to get 3 sweetheart plants for maximum pollination.
Will this bush take low temperatures?
Norlene W on Oct 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It survived a very cold winter in NY last year as a young plant without any protection. However, it also does not grow very fast and was tiny when we got it.
What does chill hours mean?
GlowingGreen on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Chill hours is the number of hours between 32-45F during the dormant period, (usually between November and February) the plant needs in order to produce fruit the following year.
Can you plant this in a planter with annuals for a fun potted patio planter?
Coleen B on May 2, 2018
