THE BLUEBERRY STORY
In the Spring of 2011 we planted our initial blueberry (2 year old potted) plants consisting of 420 Rabbiteye of 4 excellent varieties. They were selected based on larger size, production volumn, and quality of taste. The varieties are "Becky", "Premier", "Tifton Blue" and "Brightwell".
The Spring of 2012 we planted an additional 130 "Brightwell", which gives us over 500 three year old blueberry plants. The young plants have produced excellent bloom quantities this Spring, and we have a respectable number of berries per plant beginning to ripen.
We added approximately 100 "Ochlockee" variety. This is a relatively new variety from south Georgia that has been producing excellent results over the last five or so years sice being introduced.
This 2013 season these blueberry plants will produce a moderate number of berries with significant increases in quality and quantity over the next two to four years.
