Special Attributes

Southland rabbiteye blueberry has a compact, upright growth habit with dense foliage, that usually remains on the bush (to some degree) in shades of orange and red, even throughout the Winter months. It ripens in mid-late season, and does so over a long, extended period of time. The berries of Southland are large in numbers and in size, and tend to be sweeter than other mid-season rabbiteye varieties. They also tend to be found in higher concentrations on the interior of the bush, which makes Southland much more conducive to hand-picking, and right up the home gardener's alley.




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 >
