The  Climax Blueberry  is a variety from the Rabbiteye family. The  Rabbiteye blueberry bush  is classified as a vigorously fruit bearing plant that is naturally heat tolerant. Because of its ability to tolerate heat and its susceptibility to cold climates, the  Rabbiteye blueberry bush  is well suited for planting in the Southeastern US.
