after i buy one from a store, how soon will they produce, and how many do they produce usually in a year?
8-20lbs depending on variety/age/care
For southern high bush on a 7 year old bush about 10 lbs depending on pruning, how happy the plant is and the variety.
They will produce the first year if you let them, which you shouldn't.

OOPs.. wrong post
8-20lbs depending on age/variety/care
wow. how tall will they grow?
and since when i planted the shrub in the ground, it died. so i am thinking about growing in a big pot. will it still produce that many?
0-10 lbs or so if you are factoring in age. I think the other estimates are for fully mature and happy bushes.
I have seen Emeralds so tall that the migrant workers could not pick them easily but height is controlled by you through pruning.
Rabbiteye blueberries can hit 15-20 feet I guess again if allowed to do so.
There are some commercial growers here in Florida that have acres and acres of blueberries all in 30 gallon pots. They may produce slightly less in a pot for most people. I know Steve (Fruitnut) had a huge yield out of a Star BB in a pot..bigger than I have ever got from my inground plants even but he is a rockstar grower:) He knows his stuff.
Bamboo_Rabbit say.... a slightly reduced yield in a pot is still way more production than a dead plant in the ground. :)

I grow blueberry only in pots by this way I can control the soil PH I tried in the ground never worked for me.I use different sizes pots depending on how big the tree is and how old I have them in 10, 15, and 20 gallons pots. I am happy with the production I will never be a blueberry wholesaler just for my kids to eat and they eat a lot of it.
