Special Attributes

A 1985, University of Florida release, Chaucer has a vigorous, spreading growth habit, and is a mid-season ripening Rabbiteye variety. Chaucer has demonstrated heavy fruit yields, but flowers early, making it more susceptible to damage from late frosts/freezing in the more northerly areas of its growing zones. Chaucer lacks a dry stem scar, so it is best when eaten/processed within shorter time spans after harvesting.

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 >
