When it comes to selecting blueberries for the home garden in the south, rabbiteye types are the best choice. This species is actually native to Georgia, and there are varieties that can be grown across the south from the coastal flatwoods to the mountain regions.
Premier is a vigorous plant, producing large, bright blue fruit of excellent quality, ripening mid-June through early July. Blueberries are not self-pollinating and need to be planted with other varieties for pollination.
Requires very acidic soil in the range of 4.5 to 5.0 and moist rich soil. Blueberries have shallow roots and need well-amended soil and mulch to retain moisture.
Sold in 8" Pot
