Why Plant Rabbiteye Blueberries?
• Forgiving, heat- and drought-tolerant plant grows even in poor soils
• A favorite of Southern and Central gardeners - resists disease and pests like rabbits
• Perfect for inexperienced gardeners who want buckets of blueberries with little or no effort
• Typically produce in their first season, satisfying even an impatient gardener
 
Where Does the Tiff Rabbiteye Blueberry Bush Grow Best?
It is perfectly suited to the hot, humid conditions of the Southern US, but can also thrive in other growing zones. Tiff Blueberry Bushes bear the most fruit when they receive full sun. A south-facing area that gets 6 or more hours per day of direct sun exposure is optimal. 
 
Is it Easy to Grow Tiff Rabbiteye Blueberries Organically?
This is an excellent choice for organic gardens. Tiff Blueberries are derived from plants native to the American South, so they are naturally-resistant to many common pests, diseases, and funguses. This means you won't need to use chemical fungicides or pesticides. 
 
Tiff Rabbiteye BlueberryBushes will live and produce fruit with very little attention, a real plus for organic gardeners. They don't need a great deal of feeding and respond well to non-commercial fertilizers. All blueberries like acidic soil, so you may need to work leaves, peat moss, or other organic material into your dirt. A layer of mulch will also add to your soil acidity and keep weeds away.
 
How Much Fruit Will I Get from a Tiff Rabbiteye Blueberry Bush?
A mature bush is very productive. In good conditions, it can produce up to two gallons of fruit in a single season. That could be as much as 13 pounds of berries. The cost savings are significant for the gardener, since blueberries can run from $3 to as high as $5 for a half-pint container at the grocery store. 
 
What Does a Tiff Blueberry Taste Like?
The berries from a Tiff Rabbiteye Blueberry Bush are very sweet when fully ripened. They are large, firm, and dark in color. They are called "rabbiteye" because the berries turn pink, like the eye of a white rabbit, before they ripen to a dark blue so you can tell when they're ripe. 
The berries are sweet enough for snacking or adding to breakfast cereal. Their firm texture makes them an excellent choice for pies, preserves, and canning. They freeze quite well and have an excellent shelf-life.
 
Pollination and Fruiting Season
Gardeners can expect to see fruit from late spring to mid-summer in many zones. 
Tiff Rabiteye Blueberry Bushes need to be pollinated by different genetic varieties. This is why when you order more than one plant, we automatically send you cross-pollinating varieties. Plant several for the greatest pollination and harvest.
 
Best Time to Plant
Fruit trees and shrubs can be planted in nearly any season. As long as the ground is not frozen, you can plant a blueberry shrub. Just be sure to give the shrubs adequate water if you plant in the summer.
