Biloxi Blueberries



Biloxi are medium-sized, light blue, firm blueberries with good flavour.

They have a small scar after picking.

The bush is generally upright, though sometimes bushy. It needs 400 hours of cold weather during the winter to produce well, and needs other varieties to cross-pollinate with for high yields.

Biloxi Blueberries ripen early.

History Notes

Biloxi Blueberries were developed by a James M. Spiers at the USDA-ARS Small Fruits Research Station in Poplarville, Mississippi and were released in 1998.

Language Notes

Biloxi Blueberries were named after Biloxi, Mississippi, in honour of the town's 300th birthday.
