‘Biloxi’ is excellent for southern climates and has an excellent flavor! ‘Biloxi’ is recommended for low or no-chill regions where the bush can be grown fully evergreen. It’s light blue in color and very firm with medium size berries. ‘Biloxi’ is notable for its bushy growth habit and high quality berries. Blueberries can be grown as a beautiful, productive hedge with spring flowers on dark green foliage, delicious fruit in summer, and fiery red foliage for autumn color. This southern highbush type cultivar has good resistance to leaf spots and diseases.
Blueberries are growing in popularity due to their reliability and health attributes. Blueberries are extremely nutritious with antioxidants and high vitamin contents. They are also delicious in pies and make delicious jams and preserves. Best of all, bake your own Blueberry Muffins!
For best results, set plants out as early as possible in the spring. Prune branches back about 1/2 their length at planting time with no further pruning required the next 3 years. Prune annually thereafter during the dormant period. ‘Biloxi’ blueberries may require protection from the spring frost. They are also self-fertile; however, they are more productive when planted with other blueberry plants.
