Austin Blueberries are large, easily picked rabbiteye blueberries that can be eaten fresh or used for juices, jellies, canning, or freezing. The Austin vine has an early ripening period, with the berries ready to pick in late spring or early summer. It is also a high producer so there will be plenty of berries to go around. The vine has an open habit and grows around 6-8 feet tall. Austin blueberries require 450-550 chill hours. It can be planted in full sun or partial shade.

How to Plant
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
The bush I received was a little on the small size compared to the example. However it was healthy and I am very pleased with it.
These blueberry plants are probably the best I've ever received from any nursery.
