More about 'Alice Blue' Rabbiteye Blueberry...

A 1978, University of Florida release, Alice Blue has an exceptionally vigorous growth habit that produces an abundant crop of medium-sized, firm, very sweet, and tasty berries. Alice Blue requires fewer chill hours to maximize its fruit production than most other blueberries require - and it flowers early, making it one of the earlier ripening Rabbiteye varieties. Having the characteristic and benefit of early flowering/ripening does make Alice Blue more susceptible to late frost/freeze damage. However, when planted in the more southerly areas of its growing zones, that risk is greatly reduced - and Alice Blue will thrive and produce many bountiful harvests.
