The Tifblue blueberry bush produces big, delicious berries on hardy canes, making a must-have for your garden 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 Tifblue being a heavy berry producer, you will easily grow enough berries to make tons of muffins, smoothies, cakes, breads, pies, or even add them to your morning oatmeal or cereal. Blueberries are also easy to freeze, providing off-season enjoyment as well.
Tifblue was introduced at the University of Georgia Experiment Station in Tifton, GA. This amazing blueberry was a breakthrough in hybridizing native river bottom plants from Georgia and Florida habitats. It can handle colder weather than other Rabbiteye blueberries, so this shrub is great for cooler climates. Around 650 chill hours are the chilling requirement needed for this plant to fruit properly. Grows best in USDA hardiness zones 6-9.
Fruits are large, light blue and ripen later in the season, ready for harvest in mid-June to late July. Excess fertilizer easily damages blueberries, so be sure to allow for rain between applications. Plant in full sun for best results!
The advantage of buying our potted blueberries is that their well-developed root systems will have them quickly thriving in your yard. These blueberry varieties do not ship bare root for the safety of the plants. After the orders ship, be sure to plant the berry bush as soon as the plants arrive. You can even plant in raised beds with organic material such as pine bark or peat moss to mulch the vigorous upright growth. Blueberry planting is a fun activity for gardeners of any age.
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 throughout the year. The Tif Blue blueberry is a great choice for your berry collection.
