PREMIER BLUEBERRY BUSH
The  Premier Blueberry  is among the best Rabbiteyes for the Eastern United States and is very cold hardy and resistant to early frost damage.
One of the best for fresh eating and freezing,  The  Premier  berry harvest is the biggest of any dark  blueberry, providing plenty of  berries  for fresh eating, desserts, recipes, jams, and freezing. This type needs another Rabbiteye to grow.
The  plant  will grow best in an area that is full sun or partial shade. They require soil that is well drained but moist especially throughout the growing season. Acidic, organically rich soil is best for fruit production. Adding  peat moss  or elemental sulfur can amend the soil.
  • Beautiful upright plants
  • Fruit has excellent flavor, light blue color, and a dry scar
  • Upright and vigorous
  • Hardy in Zones 7-9
  • Chilling requirement is 450 to 500 hours
  • Suggested pollinators are Austin and Brightwell.


Plants will be shipped semi-bare-root (with little soil) from December to April. As the plants are dormant (sleeping), it is perfectly safe to send them bare-root. Winter is the safest and the best time to ship plants.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
