The 'Blueberry Tree' lives, folks.

I have a handful of nicely sized 6'-7' barked up specimens which I am currently propagating at our new Storefront.

Can't wait to make this available after all the years of efforts which have been invested to keep it alive.

Actually, I highly suspect that this is a Rabbit Eye blueberry.

Yes, you are correct.  Back when I first wrote this, I typically called any rabbiteye or highbush either a northern highbush or Southern highbush.  However, to be specific, I have since learned that rabbiteyes are merely a different type.  Which is even more intriguing, as rabbiteyes are not known to be self-fruitful like this one.

So, even better that this one is self-fruitful, and from the looks of it, it's seedlings are proving to keep the same resilience and growth habits.

I will be adding some updated photos of ones I'm growing in containers and how much intentional stress I've put some through.  These suckers are tough.

Is there ways to induce blueberry plants to set a second crop??
