A 1983, University of Georgia release, Brightwell Rabbiteye is named after esteemed UGA blueberry developer, Dr. James Brightwell, and is considered by many among the top varieties in the world! Best known for its reliability and its long, sustained harvest period (~ 35 days), Brightwell is ideal for almost any planting application. It has very vigorous, upright growth – and because it flowers late, it is highly resistant to freeze damage.

It is also known for its very firm, uniformly round berries – a favorite for mechanical harvesting/commercial processing. Pollination: Cross-pollinators are Alapaha, Austin, Powderblue, and Premier.
