The Climax blueberry has it all—early season ripening, exceptional performance in hot and humid climates, showy fall color and is generally low maintenance.
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 Climax being a heavy berry producer, you will easily grow enough berries to make muffins, smoothies, cakes, bread, pies, even add them to your morning oatmeal or cereal. Blueberries are also easy to freeze, providing off-season enjoyment as well.
Blueberries prefer full sun for best fruit production and even moisture. The Climax is tolerant of hot, humid conditions and it’s medium sized berries tend to ripen in late May to early June. Around 450 chill hours are needed for ideal fruit set.
The advantage of buying our potted blueberries is their well-developed root systems and branch structure that will have them quickly thriving and producing fruit in your yard. 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.
