The berries can be mechanically harvested for the fresh market, because they ripen all at once.
The bush is good for fresh market or for processing, or for home gardeners who want to do a lot of freezing all at once.
The upright, open bush blooms early, so it is often caught out by frost.
It needs 450 to 500 hours of cold weather during the winter.
Climax blueberries were released in Georgia, USA in 1974.
