Furthermore, do Jersey blueberries need a pollinator?
While the Jersey blueberry does not require a pollinator to produce fruit, planting with Blueray or Bluecrop will increase yields through cross-pollination.
Also, how do you breed blueberries? Traditional breeding — crossing one high performing plant with another, then selecting the best offspring and seeing how well they do in the field — can take a long time: up to 20 years for blueberries, Ashrafi said. But marker-assisted breeding can speed it up.
Consequently, how many blueberries does a plant produce?
You can expect to average around five to seven pints of fresh, sweet blueberries per plant each summer. Blueberries are remarkably carefree. You aren't likely to encounter many insects or diseases, and if birds are a problem, just cover the plants with netting.
Do blueberry plants like coffee grounds?
Coffee grounds are highly acidic, they note, so they should be reserved for acid-loving plants like azaleas and blueberries. And if your soil is already high in nitrogen, the extra boost from coffee grounds could stunt the growth of fruits and flowers.
