More about 'Alapaha' Rabbiteye Blueberry...

A 2001, University of Georgia release, and a breakthrough in early ripenng Rabbiteye blueberries. Alapaha is late blooming to miss the late frost, but ripens early in a concentrated burst (as early as late May) in growing areas further south. A vigorous, upright growing plant, with firm and very tasty berries that have less pronounced seeds than other Rabbiteye varieties. The ripening berries of Alapaha also have improved resistance to cracking after heavy rainfall. Small, dry stem scars contribute to good shelf-life.
