XF126

Mid to late-season. Rubel, an old-fashioned original that cannot be transcended, was one of the first commercially named blueberry varieties. It is a true wild selection with deep blue, exquisitely sweet fruit. Where newer cultivars have traded their nutritive qualities for larger size, lighter color, and thinner skins, Rubel has retained its rich antioxidant content (twice that of other varieties) and unequalled, sweet, intense flavor. The vigorous, upright bushes grow 4-7 feet tall and consistently produce high yields of smaller to medium berries. For zones 4-7.
Blueberries are shipped at the end of April/beginning of May. They are in 3 1/2 inch pots and are 1 year old. Complete growing instructions are included with each order.

PLEASE READ: Not available to HI, US Territories or Canada.

"Vaccinium corymbosum Famous for eating fresh, canning, and freezing, or as a beautiful landscape shrub. Blueberries provide flowers in the spring, colorful berries, good foliage, and striking autumn color. They are self-pollinating, but will produce better if more than one variety is planted. Plants reach maturity in 5-6 seasons and produce 5-10 pounds of fruit annually.

Blueberries are 1 year old and ship at the end of April/beginning of May. Plants are in 3 1/2 inch pots. Order early for best availability. Complete growing instructions are included with each order. Not available to HI, US Territories, or Canada.

The hardiness zones listed for each variety are based on the USDA climate zone system. Most blueberries need at least 800 hours of temperatures below 45°F during the dormant season. Call your local county extension agent for information about your area. Harvest from late June through late August, depending on the variety."
