The Tifblue produces big, delicious berries on hardy bushes, 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 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.
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 take colder weather than other Rabbiteye blueberries, so this shrub is great for cooler climates. Around 650 chill hours are needed for this plant to fruit properly.
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 their well-developed root systems that will have them quickly thriving in your yard. 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.
