'Cooper' and 'Gulfcoast' southern highbush blueberry

HortScience 29(8): 923-924

'Cooper' and 'Gulfcoast' southern highbush blueberry

Released in 1987, both new cultivars are derived from the cross G180 x US75 made in 1974. US75 is a tetraploid produced from a 4x x 2x cross as a result of an unreduced gamete from diploid Fla4B. The approximate species composition based on pedigree is 72% Vaccinium corymbosum, 25% V. darrowii and 3% V. angustifolium. Cooper was selected in 1977 and Gulfcoast in 1978. Plants of both cultivars are upright and moderately vigorous even after 5 years with mulching, irrigation and light pruning.
