Rabbiteye Blueberry Variety with Good Fruit Set

The Premier Blueberry bush offers big, delicious berries that are a tasty, healthy and easily grown addition to any home garden, raised bed or landscape!

Blueberries are your go-to super food due to their high levels of antioxidants. The healing powers of blueberries are widely known. You just can’t beat the flavor of blueberries picked fresh off a plant you grew. Kids love them too!

With the Rabbiteye Premier Blueberry plant being a large berry producer, you will easily grow enough berries to make muffins, smoothies, cakes, bread, pies, even add them to your morning oatmeal or cereal. Fresh blueberries are also easy to freeze, providing off-season enjoyment as well.

The Premier variety was released jointly by the USDA and North Carolina State University in 1978. The blueberry bush tolerates a higher PH than many varieties and is a vigorous, upright and taller grower, reaching 6 to 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide. Around 550 chill hours are needed for ideal fruit set.

All blueberries require cross-pollination to produce fruit. We suggest purchasing three plants of at least two different varieties for ideal fruit production. Choosing varieties that fruit at different times in the season will extend your berry availability! Purchase our Blueberry Bundle of 3 plants to save time, money, and have a bounty of blueberries!

Premier Blueberry Bush Care

Blueberries are large, light blue and ripen early to mid season, ready for harvest in late May to early June. Plant in full sun for best results, though they can tolerate partial shade. If you are looking for more premier blueberry information read on!

Fertilizing blueberries is easy with our slow release fertilizer that only needs to be applied once a year in the spring growing season. Excess fertilizer easily damages blueberries, so be sure to allow for rain between applications.

Blueberry plants prefer acidic soil and should be planted early in the season in early spring. A layer of organic matter, mulch, or peat moss will help retain moisture. Additionally, check out our Blueberry Soil Mix for the best soil to amend your blueberry plants with. Perform a soil test to check the soil pH when planting.

How to Plant a Blueberry Bushes

This rabbiteye blueberry bush grows best across the United States in USDA growing zones 7-9 and is not the most cold hardy. The advantage of buying our potted blueberry bush is their well-developed root systems that will have them quickly thriving in your yard.

Dig a hole the size of the root ball. Plant the blueberry plant at ground level. Blueberries prefer well draining soil but it’s a good idea to keep the soil moist to establish the roots during the first year. Prune blueberries in late winter or early spring. Pruning during the spring and summer you may cut off fruiting buds.

Growing blueberries is fun and easy! You will get tons of delicious fruit in the first year of planting.
