Fruit set and bee activity in 4 rabbiteye blueberry vaccinium ashei cultivars

Fruit set and bee activity in 4 rabbiteye blueberry vaccinium ashei cultivars

Proceedings of the Florida State Horticultural Society (92): 246-247

Rabbiteye blueberry (V. ashei Reade) cultivars grown in North Central Florida [USA] have a lower percentage fruit set than Northern highbush cultivars. In 1979, the percentage fruit set 30 days after full bloom was as follows: 'Woodward', 50.7%; 'Bluegem' 31.2%; 'Tifblue' 35.4%; and 'Delite', 51.6%. However, prior to harvest on July 1, excessive fruit drop further reduced the percentage fruit set of 'Tifblue' to as low as 12.8%. Small bumblebees were present in numbers that appeared adequate for cross pollination and were the most prevalent bee species prior to full bloom.
