  • Pruning: Mature blueberry bushes should be pruned lightly, but not until they are three years old. Once they have reached three years, you should begin pruning early in the Spring every year. Just remove some of the oldest branches, and snip off any very weak looking twigs. Then you can trim all of the remaining stems by 1/3. Removing a third of the branches forces new growth, and new growth bears the most fruit.
  • Foliage: Medium green foliage, topside of leaf is green, underside yellow, turning glossy-reddish in the Fall.
  • Comments: Southern Highbush blueberries are a heat-tolerant cross between Rabbiteye and Northern Highbush varieties, combining Rabbiteye heat tolerance and "Southern Toughness" with a better fruit quality of a Northern Highbush. It has large berries with excellent flavor and a very pronounced "tropical fruit" aroma. Hybrid consistency produces uniformly large berries. Ripens mid to late season.
