O’Neal’s large, sweet, dark blue fruit is considered one of the best tasting of the southern highbush cultivars. It comes on early-second week of May, is large and attractive, and does not deteriorate under warmer conditions.
O’Neal needs a modest 500 to 600 chilling hours.
Summer foliage is a pleasant gray-green, followed by a Fall foliage show of orange & burgundy.
Best production when interplanted with another Southern Highbush such as Misty.
Full sun, in acidic soil, with regular water & fertility.
Very wildlife and pollinator friendly.
