blueberry that has deep green foliage, multicolored berries that turn from light green to yellow to orange to sunset red to midnight blue as they ripen, and produces normal-sized berries with a full-flavored taste.
blueberries (Vaccinium ashei) are used as endogenous antioxidant defense ingredients in the modern health-conscious food industry, due to their significant levels of anthocyanins, phenolic acids, and vitamins [2,3].

In trials, Gupton and Pearl flowered in mid to late March and were ready for harvest about 21 days before the earliest ripening rabbiteye

This study systematically evaluated the bioactivities of phenolic compounds in rabbiteye
blueberries and assessed their potential antiproliferation and apoptosis induction effects using two colon cancer cell lines, HT-29 and Caco-2.
blueberries are descended from Southeastern native plants.

Blueberry acreage in Mississippi was approximately 667 ha in 2002 (Myles et al., 2004) and is predicted to increase to 1011 ha by the year 2008 (Spiers et al, 1998; Strik and Banados, 2005; MDAC, 2008).Approximately 50% of Mississippi Rabbiteye
and Southern Highbush blueberries are processed, and the remaining 50% are marketed as fresh fruit (48%) or sold on a pick-your-own basis (2%).
There are three types of blueberries: highbush, lowbush, and rabbiteye
. The highbush blueberry is Vaccinium corymbosum, the rabbiteye
is Vaccinium ashei, and the lowbush is the common name for several different species, most notably Vaccinium angustifolium or Vaccinium myrtilloides.
