Columbus Rabbiteye Organic Blueberry Plant
Introduced by North Carolina State in 2005, Columbus is a rabbiteye blueberry that has large berries which are very sweet. They also resist cracking during wet weather. Yield is between 9-11# of berries on a mature bush, which is very vigorous and grows to a height of 6-7′ tall and 3-4′ wide. Columbus was rated by many southern blueberry growers as having the best flavor (high sweetness with little acidity) of any cultivar grown. In south Georgia, Columbus will ripen between late June through July; in Kentucky ripening will be between late July to August.
