Special Attributes

A 1983, University of Georgia release, Brightwell Rabbiteye is named after esteemed UGA blueberry developer, Dr. James Brightwell, and is considered by many among the top varieties in the world! Best known for its reliability and its long, sustained harvest period (~ 35 days), Brightwell is ideal for almost any planting application. It has very vigorous, upright growth - and because it flowers late, it is highly resistant to freeze damage. Brightwell is a heavy producer of medium size berries, with excellent flavor, and dry stem scar. It is also known for its very firm, uniformly round berries - a favorite for mechanical harvesting/commercial processing.

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.
