Alapaha Rabbiteye Blueberry is an open upright deciduous shrub that produces sweet medium-sized blueberries.  The elliptical blue-green foliage turns shades of yellow or orange in the fall.  The white flower clusters bloom later than other varieties in mid-spring. Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  Alapaha has excellent disease and pest resistance.  While self fruiting, Alapaha should be planted with others to cross-pollinate and increase yield.
