I just returned from a week visiting family just
north of Montgomery,AL. Their rabbiteye blueberries
were in full swing - I'd pick 2-3 gallons every
morning before the temps climbed into the upper 90s.

My rabbiteyes here in KY, just north of the TN border
(identities long ago forgotten - they were cuttings
my dad rooted from some of his) are just now
beginning to ripen a berry here and there.
No longer have any northern highbush varieties, as
they fell prey to the bulldozer when my wife decided
to put in a tennis court last fall, but as well as
the rabbiteye varieties produce here, I doubt that
I'll replant northern types - I'll probably go with
all rabbiteye and Southern highbush varieties.
