Camellia

Camellia is a midseason variety that was selected for its uniformly large, sky blue berries that have excellent flavor and aroma. Our early observations here in the West show Camellia to be a heavy producer of medium vigor. In the southeast region, Camellia blooms 8 days later but ripens only 3 days after Star. Camellia can be planted with Star and Legacy as possible pollination choices. We recommend Camellia for commercial planting where a superior flavored variety is desired.
