More about 'Climax' Rabbiteye Blueberry...

A 1974, University of Georgia release, Climax has an upright, "open" growth habit, and intense green foliage. An early season variety with a very concentrated ripening period makes Climax a great choice for home freezing. It has medium size berries that are light medium-blue, with an excellent, "spicy-sweet" flavor. Along with its consistently heavy yields of very firm berries and small stem scars, Climax is one of the best blueberries for mechanical harvesting / commercial use. However, because it ripens early and flowers early, Climax can potentially be at greater risk for having problems in years with unusually late frosts/freezing.
