Special Attributes

A 1978, North Carolina State University release, the berries of Powderblue Rabbiteye blueberry are a very pretty, light blue color. They are medium in size, with excellent firmness, and they have a delicious, sweet (even slightly tart) flavor. Powderblue has an upright, spreading growth habit, and are an excellent choice for using in the edible/ornamental landscape - it has fall foliage that is yellow-orange in color. Powderblue is also a good choice for commercial plantings, and has shown good freeze resistance, as well as a good resistance to overall disease.

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 >
