Special Attributes

A 2002, University of Georgia release, Ochlockonee has a vigorous, upright growth habit. It is an excellent yielding, late season producer of light blue, medium-large size berries that are firm, have good flavor, and a dry stem scar. As a late season flowering and ripening rabbiteye, Ochlockonee has good resistance to late frosts/freezes, and also stands-up well to mechanical 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 >
