Blueberry - Alapaha (Rabbit Eye) #5 Pot
Alapaha blueberries are a medium-sized, dark blue berry which ripen in late May to early June. It is named for the Alapaha (a-LAP-uh-ha) River in southern Georgia. Its combination of early ripening and late flowering results in high frost resistance. These rabbiteye berries are perfect for eating fresh, or freezing. The fruit has a good firmness, flavor and shelf life. The plant has an upright form and grows 6-10 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide. It should be planted in full sun with sandy to loamy soil. Alapaha needs a pollinator such as Austin or Premier. Alapaha blueberries require 450-550 chill hours.
