Another 1978, North Carolina State University release, Premier Rabbiteye blueberry has a very vigorous, upright growth habit, and it is known to be a heavy yielding variety with good overall disease resistance. Berries ripen early to mid-season (typically earlier than other mid-season blueberry varieties), are large in size, with a beautiful light blue color, wonderful flavor, and a dry stem scar. Premier Rabbiteye blueberry is recommended for all applications, but is especially suited for hand picking – which makes it an excellent choice for home gardeners. Premier also has attractive fall foliage that is orange-red in color. Pollination: Cross-pollinators are Alapaha, Austin and Brightwell.
Plants at least 3 varieties of blueberry for cross-pollination.
