BLUEBERRY - BILOXI
Botanical Name: Vaccinium spp
A great choice for hotter climates with very little chill hours. It is often the first variety to hit the markets ripening a few weeks before other early blueberry varieties. The fruit is firm and the size is medium. Even though it fruits early it can often produce a second harvest later in the season although it's first time to fruit yields the best harvest. Best to mix with other varieties so that when this one is not fruiting another variety is.

Question & Answer
Can I plant 2 x blueberry Biloxi trees so that they can pollinate each other? From: PADDINGTON QLD
They will likely fruit by themselves however you can get more berries by planting another different variety ( not the same variety ) close by and thus getting cross pollination. Other suitable blueberry varieties that will cross pollinate a Biloxi are the Sharpblue, Gulfcoast, Misty, Sunshine Blue and Backyard Blue. There is a very good explanation found on this page http://blog.daleysfruit.com.au/2014/11/pollination-of-fruit-trees.html

Bought in March, now growing well. Is South of a fence so I'm hoping it grows quickly so as to get enough sunshine. It is currently flowering and seems to be happy enough. I have a Misty for cross pollination.
