More about 'Premier' Rabbiteye Blueberry...

Another 1978, North Carolina State University release, Premier Rabbiteye blueberry has a very vigorous, upright growth habit, and it is known to be a heavy yielding variety with good overall disease resistance. Berries ripen early to mid-season (typically earlier than other mid-season blueberry varieties), are large in size, with a beautiful light blue color, wonderful flavor, and a dry stem scar. Premier Rabbiteye blueberry is recommended for all applications, but is especially suited for hand picking - which makes it an excellent choice for home gardeners.  Premier also has attractive fall foliage that is orange-red in color.

We tried SO many different places to find a decent blue berry bush. Me and my husband LOVE!! blue berries and wanted to grow a small patch in our 1 acre backyard. These are ABSOLUTELY wonderful. So thankful to find a place that carries such high quality products that ACTUALLY PRODUCE BLUE BERRIES. I just made my FIRST pie and it was amazing. Would recommend these guys to anyone looking not only for fruit plants but for fruit! Great job and thanks so much!
