Bountiful Berry Bush that Doubles as an Impressive Ornamental
Beautiful Landscaping; Delicious Blueberries
The Austin blueberry is a rabbiteye blueberry variety that pulls double duty. It’s an attractive ornamental landscape option that produces tasty, healthy, plump blueberries every year. Those in warmer climates (Zones 7-9) will receive some of the largest, juiciest blueberries one can grow.
Get Blueberries as Early as THIS Summer!
The Austin Blueberry bush will not disappoint. When you plant blueberries in early spring you'll be able to enjoy your first harvest that very summer. Thanks to hand-grafting, your Austin Blueberry Bush “thinks” it’s older. That means instead of waiting two to three years until you’re ready for blueberry picking season, you can reap the benefits of plucking giant berries the very first year!
Incomparable Strength and Longevity
Unlike blueberry plants you find at wholesale stores and most nurseries, your plant is shipped with the root system intact. We don’t ship bare-root, so your bush will have a great head start, with a healthy root system ready to thrive as soon as it’s planted. Furthermore, your Austin Blueberry plant is naturally low maintenance and does well on its own.
Superior to Super Market Blueberries
Berries at the market are convenient but nothing compares to the flavor of home-grown Austin Blueberries. They’ll start out sweet and almost tangy, and as they ripen, get sweeter and juicier. Supermarket berries are picked before they ripen and then chilled. They never have a chance to sweeten. The process used to provide berries to consumers is also expensive. That cost is passed along on to you.
You’ll save money and get better tasting berries with your own Austin Blueberry bush!
Your Recipes Will Take on a New Level “Oh My Goodness!”
Austin Blueberries are fantastic right off the vine, and are mouthwatering additions to salads and cooked dishes.
They are no limits to all the ways these berries will add pizazz to your meals. From pancakes to marinades and homemade jams and jellies, you’re able to enjoy them all year from just one summer’s harvest. Can them or freeze them to use in pastries, muffins and juice. You’ll find this blueberry to be incredibly versatile.
A Convenient and Delicious Way to Get Your Daily Vitamins
Increase your intake of vitamin K, magnesium and vitamin C with a handful of Austin blueberries each day. This sweet treat is low on the glycemic index and recent research indicates that blueberries can increase memory function in older adults.
You can even freeze these blueberries without harming the anthocyanin antioxidants. It’s the gift that keeps on giving all year long!
Our customers LOVE this bush, so order now while they’re in stock. You can enjoy your own personal blueberry harvest this summer!
