Climax Blueberry Plant Care
Blueberries prefer full sun for best fruit production and even moisture. Around 450 chill hours are needed for the ideal fruit set. Chill hours may vary depending on the blueberry variety.
The Climax Blueberry bush size is up to 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide in the right planting site. Most bushes are seen more compact especially if planted in rows like a blueberry farm. The plants will grow to the space you put them in.
Grows best across the United States in USDA hardiness zones 6-9. The Climax Blueberry plant is tolerant of hot, humid conditions and it’s medium sized berries tend to ripen in late May to early June.
Blueberries prefer acidic soil and a layer of organic mulch with things like pine bark or peat moss will help if planted in any type of clay soil. If you are unsure about the soil pH do a soil test.
You may need to prune your blueberries annually to maintain the desired size and shape. These are shallow rooted plants that do not take much maintenance to keep them thriving. Well drained soil is best to prevent root rot. If you are planting in a container, be sure to choose one with drainage holes.
We suggest purchasing three plants of at least two different varieties for ideal fruit production. Choosing varieties that fruit at different times in the season will extend your berry availability. Rabbiteye blueberries are a great choice for many southern states. Read more about the differences between blueberry bushes.
