The Climax Blueberry is a warm-zone blueberry of the rabbit-eye type, considered by many to be the very best of its type. It has a huge crop in June, and a single bush can give you 25 pounds of delicious blueberries. It is also decorative, with a lovely spring blooming and bold orange and red fall colors. It is a full-size bush, potentially reaching 8 to 10 feet tall and wide, so allow plenty of room when planting. Grow it among your acid-loving plants, in a dedicated fruit area, or in a container if you don’t have suitable acid soil.

  • Ideal blueberry bush for southern gardens
  • Carries a big crop of delicious berries in June
  • Attractive blooms in spring earn it a place in your shrub beds
  • Strong fall colors of red and orange
  • Up to 25 pounds of berries from a single bush

Grow the Climax Blueberry in full sun, or with just a few hours of shade each day. It is hardy in zone 7, and only needs a limited amount of cold in winter. Grow it in moist but well-drained soil, rich in organic material. The pH value of the soil must be below 5.5 for success, or grow it in a container, using a low-pH soil mix. Pest and diseases are uncommon, and water regularly as this bush is not drought resistant. Prune well-established bushes in early spring.
