Like its cousin 'Titan', the Krewer Blueberry produces an abundance of giant, almost quarter-size blueberries that have excellent firmness and flavor. Many suggest that Krewer is superior to the 'Titan' known to produce the largest of all blueberries. Grow both and you can't go wrong! Get all the details below

Special Attributes

Like its cousin 'Titan', the Krewer Blueberry produces an abundance of giant, almost quarter-size blueberries that have excellent firmness and flavor. Many suggest that Krewer is superior to the 'Titan' known to produce the largest of all blueberries. Grow both and you can't go wrong! Krewer is vigorous plant with blue-green foliage that turns to deep red in fall making it a fine selection for use in the edible landscape. It ripens earlier than other rabbiteye cultivars and is self-pollinating, so there's no need to plant other blueberry varieties for cross pollination or berry production. That said, with a pollinator you can expect bigger yields of larger berries. larger berries.


Origin

A new blueberry variety has been released by The University of Georgia and is being named in honor of one of UGA’s blueberry pioneers and recent retirees. ‘Krewer™’, named after Dr. Gerard Krewer, is a very large fruited blueberry that ripens in late May to early June in south Georgia. The new variety has shown high yield potential in early experimental trials, and offers a great companion variety for the recently released large fruited ‘Titan™’. ‘Krewer™’ is suitable for commercial production, pick-­-your-­-own operations, and home gardens.



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 >
