Q.I’m Looking For A Blueberry Bush That Will Grow Well In Zone Nine That Does Not Require Cross Pollination.

I’m looking for a blueberry bush that will grow well in zone nine that does not require cross pollination. The abundance of birds and rats in my neighborhood enjoy all of my fruits and vegetables unfortunately before I do! I have a screened in pool area and I’m wondering if there’s a variety of blueberry that doesn’t require cross pollination and could be grown inside the screen enclosure. The downside also of this is that it blocks a large amount of the sun while protecting us from sunburn! I keep trying to have it all, though. Is there hope? Thank you Barbara Dekle

The two types of blueberry bushes that do well in zone 9 need another variety for cross pollination and they need full sun. You can cover them with mesh while they are growing to keep the animals out.
