The pollination of rabbiteye blueberries in Tokyo


, : The pollination of rabbiteye blueberries in Tokyo. Acta Horticulturae (61): 335-341

A 5-year study on pollination, using 3 cvs of rabbiteye blueberries, showed that cross-pollination usually resulted in a greater percentage of fruit set and berry size than self- or open-pollination. Cross-pollination also generally increased the number of large seeds per berry and resulted in larger berries and earlier ripening.

Fruit size on Tifblue was hig...
