Special Attributes

A 1955 University of Georgia release, Tifblue is one of the oldest blueberry cultivars still being planted, and has long been considered one of the best, most widely adapted varieties on the U.S. market. It has a tall, upright growth habit, good freeze resistance, and is one of the most ornamental rabbiteye varieties due to its brilliant, orange-red, fall leaf color. Tifblue ripens in mid-late season, and produces abundant yields of light blue, medium-large size fruit, with excellent flavor, and a small, dry stem scar. Tifblue berries also store and ship very well - which is yet another reason it has been a top selection for both home and commercial growers.




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: 7a-9b  Find Your Zone >
