Bluegem are light-blue blueberries with a powdery sheen.
They are firm and medium-sized with very good flavour.
Bluegem blueberries ripen all at once, and won’t drop off the bush. They can be mechanically harvested for the fresh market.
The bush spreads somewhat but produces high yields.
It needs 350 to 400 hours of cold weather during the winter.
Bluegem blueberries were released in 1970 by the Florida Agricultural Experimental Station.
