Summer is time for fun, relaxation, and blueberries! Pick fresh, ripe blueberries all summer long from the Climax Rabbiteye Blueberry bush. This fast-growing bush has a mature height of 4-5ft and a spread of 3-4ft. Its glossy, dark green foliage turns a russet red in autumn, making it a great ornamental addition to any landscape. Its white, bell-shaped flowers appear in early summer and are a favorite of pollinators like bees and butterflies.
The Climax Rabbiteye Blueberry can tolerate a variety of soil types, but prefers a slightly acidic soil with a pH of 4.5-5.5. It is also quite drought tolerant, and once established, needs only occasional watering. For best fruit production, fertilize with an acid-based fertilizer in early spring. Prune the bush in late winter to promote new growth.
Harvesting begins in July and can last up to 6 weeks. The fruit is large, firm, and sweet, and can be used for fresh eating, baking, and canning.
The Climax Rabbiteye Blueberry is a great choice for anyone looking for a hardy, easy to care for bush that produces an abundance of sweet, delicious fruit. With its adaptability and ornamental qualities, it is the perfect addition to any garden. With 1 gallon of water a day and full sun, the summer is sure to be a blast with Climax Rabbiteye Blueberries!
