Rabbiteye blueberries are more hardy that other varieties and prefer USDA Zones seven through nine although they can adapt to a more varied range. These cultivars are generally pest tolerant and produce large crops of fruit. Before you plant one of these in your garden, make sure that you have significant area for the height. These shrubs can grow to heights of 12 to 15 feet. Like highbush cultivars, Rabbiteye shrubs benefit from cross-pollination between more than one variety. Cross-pollination will help all of the blueberries in the garden to increase the amount of fruit that each bush produces for harvest.
