Climax Blueberry Care
Blueberry bush care involves providing your plant with full sun for best fruit production and watering with even moisture. The Climax blueberry bush needs around 450 chill hours for the ideal fruit production. Chill hours may vary depending on the blueberry variety.
The Climax Blueberry plant grows best across the United States in USDA hardiness zones 7-9. It is tolerant of hot, humid conditions and its medium sized berries tend to ripen in late May to early June.
Climax Blueberries prefer acidic soil and a layer of organic mulch with things like pine bark or peat moss will help if planted in any type of clay soil. If you are unsure about the soil pH you can perform a soil test to help find the fight balance. You can enrich the soil with nutrients with our Blueberry Potting Soil if your soil is not in the best ideal blueberry growing condition.
How Large Is A Climax Blueberry Plant & How Tall Do They Grow?
The Climax Blueberry bush height can range from 3 to 15 feet tall when they go unpruned. Climax Blueberry plants can grow as much as 3 to 10 feet wide if given enough space to grow. Planting them in full fun and sandy soil can help them grow to their full potential.
Are Climax Blueberries Self-Pollinating?
Like all blueberries, the Climax Blueberry needs cross-pollination in order to produce fruit. It needs an early blooming blueberry variety as a pollinator, such as Tifblue or Austin.
We suggest purchasing three blueberry plants of at least two different varieties for ideal fruit production. Choosing blueberry varieties that fruit at different times in the season will extend your berry availability. Read more about the differences between blueberry bushes.
