The low-chill, Southern highbush group of blueberries are the varieties that offer the most promise for extended season production on the California coast. Some of these varieties require little or no chilling to break dormancy and stay green year around if temperatures are mild. Sharpblue, Georgia Gem, Marimba, Misty, Gulf Coast, and Cape Fear are low-chill varieties. Sharpblue is a widely grown, early-season variety and produces earliest in the season.
