About Woodard Rabbiteye Blueberry

The Woodard Rabbiteye Blueberry is one of the oldest Rabbiteye varieties around, and it’s still one of the best! It’s is one of the earliest fruiting blueberries around, as it only requires 350 Chill Hours (Chill Hours are the number of hours under 45 degrees that a plant needs to produce fruit). White bell-shaped blooms cover this shrub in early spring. Then, medium to large dark blue blueberries mature in late spring to early summer. This fruit is rich in antioxidants and very tasty. You can feel good about feeding your family healthy fruit every year grown in your very own garden! 

The foliage is bluish-green in hue and lightly glossy. Before losing its leaves in winter, its foliage takes on an orange-red hue in fall.

This selection is naturally heat-tolerant which makes it well suited for growing in the southern United States.

Reaches a mature size of 5-6 feet high and 5-6 feet wide.

We do not guarantee that they will be fruiting or flowering on arrival. Our priority is providing quality landscape plants that are ready to perform beautifully over time.
