Often Considered the Best of the Blueberries
Tifblue Blueberry, Vaccinium ashei 'Tifblue', is a deciduous shrub that produces delectable fruit. Plant several for a unique hedge, or one by a window where you won’t miss a moment of its 3-season interest.
Tifblue is an extraordinary blueberry variety. A rabbiteye type blueberry, Tifblue Blueberry produces fruit that is sweeter, hardier and that freezes better. It is often considered the best of the blueberry varieties available for both its flavor and autumn color.
The excitement begins when your Tifblue’s spring buds unfurl into delicate, white/pink blossoms. The flowers are the harbinger of a sumptuous feast of superior fruit that begins to ripen in mid-June and continues on through July. The berries appear in clusters, each blue-hued beauty large, firm and packed full of outstanding, sweet flavor.
The berries of your Tifblue Blueberry tend to hang onto the bush quite well, so you’re less likely to lose many prior to picking. If you prefer a few tart berries, you can pick a few of your Tifblue Blueberry before fully ripe to add to the delectable sweetness of their fully ripe nature. When the harvest is complete, you can still look forward to one of the best fall displays a blueberry bush has to offer, with Tifblue’s remarkable transition from vibrant green to shades of brilliant burgundy.
Tifblue Blueberry will grow 10 to 12 feet tall. It has a vigorous nature and an upright form. It’s adaptable to a variety of soils, and overall very hardy.
Can you imagine having a Tifblue Blueberry just outside your front door? Or perhaps several in a side yard for your own mini-orchard? They don’t require special care and yet provide flowers, form and fall interest every year. Of course, even more enchanting is the opportunity to have your own delicious fruit available to you, fresh-picked by your own hand. It’s a marvel to be sure…and one you won’t want to miss out on experiencing this year!
