I paid a visit to the unplanned scrubland Eden the other day and came across something very interesting. Check this out:
Definitely some sort of blueberry, though this one was as tall as me.
Rabbiteye blueberries are ripening right now but these aren’t there yet. Anyone have a guess as to what it might be?
Native – or an escapee? My bet is on the former. There are a lot of blueberries and relatives in Florida… I’ve just not come across this one before. It’s growing in terrible soil. If the fruit tastes good I might have to take cuttings and see if they’ll root in my nursery.
Let me know in the comments if you have a guess on this Florida blueberry. Gotta be some kind of Vaccinum!
