Special Attributes

A 1998, MIssissippi State University - ARS/USDA release, Biloxi Southern Highbush blueberry has a vigorous, upright, spreading, and notably bushy growth habit. It is recommended for low to no chill areas (<150 hours), where it typically can be grown fully-evergreen. Biloxi is one of the earliest ripening Southern Highbush blueberries, and produces medium size fruit that is light blue in color, very firm, and has a small stem scar. Biloxi has a wonderful, distinct flavor, and is noted as one of the best tasting Southern Highbush varieties.




Cultural Preferences

Blueberry plants grow best in an acidic (pH of 4.8 to 5.2), organically rich, moist, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. The more sun the better for best berry production. The shallow, fibrous roots of blueberry plants like a consistently moist but well-drained soil which can be provided by with a layer of organic mulch. Although blueberries are self-fertile, cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop (larger berries and larger yields). Therefore it is best to plant more than one variety that will bloom at the same time. Blueberry season can be extended by planting early, mid-season and late varieties. Make sure to plant two different cultivars/varieties for each season. USDA Zones: 7b-10b  Find Your Zone >
