Premier Rabbiteye Blueberry is a vigorous upright spreading deciduous shrub with high production of large very sweet light blue blueberries that ripen early.  The elliptical bright green foliage turns scarlet red in fall. The white flower clusters bloom in spring. Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  Premier should be planted with others to cross-pollinate to increase yield.
