This blueberry beauty makes delicious late season berries and it’s attractive foliage makes it a good choice as a shrub border or hedge.
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 Powder Blue 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. This heavy producer’s large fruit will ripen later in the season with a harvest beginning in late June to mid-July. Truly a shrub for all seasons; early spring will display its attractive tiny pink or white flowers, summer will have you eating handfuls of berries and autumn will offer a nice array of fall colors. Powderblue needs around 600 chill hours 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.
