Blueberries are one of the few fruit crops in production today that are native to Georgia. They are easy to grow, require minimal maintenance, and are relatively free of any significant pests. The plants have a multitude of uses in the landscape: they can be used as a hedge to screen out unsightly views, to line driveways and sides of homes, and to serve as a barrier. Most importantly, blueberries provide delicious fruit during the summer months and have many culinary uses.
