Delite Rabbiteye Blueberry is an open upright deciduous shrub that flowers early enough to potentially frost damage its buds but produces medium to large, extremely sweet light blue blueberries that ripen midseason.  The elliptical medium green foliage turns shades of yellow-orange in fall. The white flower clusters bloom early spring. Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  Delite should be planted with others to cross-pollinate and increase yield.
