The Takes the Cake is a newly developed rabbit-eye blueberry bush from the Southern Living Plant Collection that produces bountiful amounts of large delicious blueberries in late spring to summer. In Early to mid-spring, the Takes the Cake will be covered in small bell-shaped white flowers that will soon become berries. This shrub has a controlled upright growth habit that will mature to 4-5′ H x 3-4′ W. This variety is characterized by early ripening, late flowering, and a moderate chilling requirement (500-550 hours); which helps ward off damage from late frosts and results high yields of quality fruit. Use a slow release acidic fertilizer on your blueberry plants.
If this plant is ordered in winter it will be dormant on arrival!
***Remember when planting blueberry bushes you should plant two or more different types so that the bushes can cross pollinate.***
