Vernon Rabbiteye Blueberry is a compact upright spreading deciduous shrub with heavy production of large, firm, and very sweet blueberries that flower late but ripen early.  The elliptical light green foliage turns shades of yellow-orange in fall. Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  Vernon is very low maintenance once established.  While it can self fruit Vernon should be planted with others to cross-pollinate to increase yield.
