Noted because the fruit has a powdery blush and is medium in size. It is one of the toughest blueberry varieties with a harvest later in the season. A bigger harvest can be achieved by mixing with other rabbiteyes such as the tifblue or others will suit. A great selection for QLD and northern NSW as they don't need many chill hours for the fruit to set. Often the white flowers have a flush of pink. Grows well in pots and has thick enough foliage to be used as a hedge in summer but lets the light through in winter.

$14.90 ($14.90-$27.00 choose a size)

Acid loving plant, I use azalea potting mix,  azalea slow release fertiliser and pine bark. I have them planted  in large pots with 2 other varieties with them as cross pollination will produce more fruit significantly.

I love blueberries and it's a small knife in the heart to have to pull the flowers off this year. Planted near a pine tree for that extra acidic touch.

Starting with 6" sticks 2 years ago I now get about 2 handful of berries from each of my 4 plants and they have grown twice as big as last year.
