The Q&A Archives: What Blueberrry Variety to Plant?

Question: I'm new to Deep South Texas. What variety of Blueberry bushes are recommend for this area?

Answer: Mid-season Rabbiteye cultivars are best for your growing area in Texas; 'Brightwell', 'Powderblue', 'Tifblue' and 'Woodard' have performed very well in your area and in the panhandle. These cultivars bloom later than the early-season rabbiteyes and the flowers and young fruit are much less susceptible to late winter freezes. Other mid to late-season rabbiteyes that can be grown include 'Chaucer', and 'Bluegem'.

To increase cross-pollination and fruit set, mix two or more of the following cultivars group: 'Sharpblue', 'Misty', 'Beckyblue', 'Climax', 'Bonita', 'Tifblue', 'Powderblue', 'Woodard', or'Brightwell'.
