Yesterday, my Ochlockonee rabbiteye finally ripened. It gave me two tasty blueberries. This may not seem worth mentioning, except I am growing it on the northern fringe of where it is known to survive, Zone 6. And this is its 2nd year in a row producing yummy late-season berries here, coming on the heels of the two coldest winters in recent memory. I want to declare this thing a winner.
Other rabbiteyes not doing so well here. Climax gave me berries for the first time this year, but they tasted terrible.
Brightwell survives but has been non-vigorous so far. No berries yet.
Vernon has put on some modest growth. No berries yet.
Tiftblue and Powderblue died right after planting last spring. They got zapped by a late frost and never recovered.
