More about 'Bonita' Rabbiteye Blueberry...

A 1985, University of Florida release, Bonita has a fairly vigorous growth habit, with medium lateral spread. Bonita produces firm, medium-large size berries that are light blue in color, and have very good flavor. As an early flowering/ripening rabbiteye variety, Bonita will be one of the first blueberries in the garden ready to pick - but for the same reasons, it is also more susceptible to late frost/freeze damage, especially if planted in more northerly areas of its growing zones. In warmer regions that risk is greatly reduced, and Bonita will become a perennial favorite for its early season crop of beautiful, light blue, flavorful berries.
