Jelly Bean™ is a charming little Blueberry, but don't let its dwarf size fool you. This little wonder is prolific, producing clusters of medium to large, sweet Blueberries midseason. Bright green foliage emerges in spring and then gives way to darker greens and reds throughout the summer and fall. These versatile, 1-2' plants are equally attractive as a shorter hedge or in a decorative container on the patio. Like all BrazelBerries® varieties, plants are self-pollinating. ‘ZF06-179’ PP 24,662

Growing BrazelBerries® Blueberries in containers.
BrazelBerrie® are dwarf plants that produce full-size fruit. Upon arrival, replant in a 12-16" container using a peat-based potting soil mix with pine bark. Place the container outdoors in full sun for the growing season. As your plant matures, you will likely need to put it in a 20-24" diameter container. Your plant will start producing more fruit in the second year.
Fertilizing. Fertilize your plants with a slow-release fertilizer designed for acid-loving plants in spring and again in midsummer.
Pruning. In spring, prune out any dead branches. After harvest, prune out fruit-bearing branches, leaving new branches to fruit the following season.
Wintering over. In colder climates (Zone 5), you can overwinter plants in their containers by storing them in a sheltered, unheated area such as a garage or shed once the leaves drop in fall. In spring, bring them outside when temperatures remain above 25° and place in full sun.
In warmer climates where freeze-thaw cycles occur, store plants on a protected porch. Where freezing is not a concern, plants can remain outdoors in containers and enjoyed year round.
