BLUEBERRY - CLIMAX
Botanical Name: Vaccinium ashei
An early season Rabbiteye variety that grows upright and has proven its toughness in various difficult soil locations. The berries have a good flavour, are medium in size, medium blue colour, and have a small scar. This variety was selected for its potential to machine harvest, and its concentrated ripening period. Planted with Premier, it is a good commercial choice.
