Growth Habit

Many blueberry varieties are self-fruiting; however, the Tifblue Blueberry requires cross-pollination to produce fruit. Reaching a height and width of 6-8 feet, it has the potential to produce a huge abundance of blueberries. White blossoms are formed in mid to late March with the promise of ripe berries in Mid-June to late July. Foliage can be characterized by a glossy green texture with a beautiful burgundy fall color. Tifblue blueberries are small to medium in size and are tart in flavor until fully ripened.


Requires heavily acidic soil and regular water. Considered low chill at 450+ hours. Plant in full sun and fertilize with organic, acid loving fertilizers like Espoma Berry Tone.

Ingestion of large amounts of blueberries can cause gastrointestinal upset or diarrhea. Ingestion of blueberry stems and plants can cause gastrointestinal obstruction. The leaves and plants, while not toxic, are very difficult to digest. Signs of problems include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, abdominal pain, straining to defecate, and/or a decreased appetite. While deer tend to eat only the fruit of blueberry bushes, they will eat young plants if particularly hungry and cause damage to mature plants due to their bulk and rubbing against branches.
