Blueberries are grown all over Australia. The warmer areas of Australia grow Southern Highbush and Rabbiteye (low chill) varieties while the cooler areas and areas that experience frost grow Northern Highbush (high chill) varieties.
Blueberry varieties require differing amounts of chill hours for flower and fruit development. Chill hours are the cumulative number of hours where the temperature is below 7 C. Some varieties are self-fertile yet all benefit from being planted nearby another cultivar from the same variety.
Evergreen varieties retain their leaves year round while deciduous varieties leaves will fall off over the winter months. Northern Highbush varieties are deciduous while Southern Highbush and Rabbiteye varieties are semi or fully evergreen.
