Bare Root Size: 30 – 36″
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. Pollination: Cross-pollinators are Alapaha, Brightwell, Briteblue, and Powderblue.
Plants at least 3 varieties of blueberry for cross-pollination.
