1. Southern Highbush Blueberries: This variety is specifically bred to grow in humid and hot climates. Some of the popular cultivars in this category are Gulf Coast, O’Neil, and Jubilee.
2. Rabbiteye Blueberries: This variety can handle warmth and humidity. The most popular cultivars include Tifblue, Climax, and Brightwell.
3. Half-High Blueberries: This variety is a crossbreed between northern highbush and lowbush blueberries. They can handle warmer temperatures and are popular in the northern regions of the US. Some of the cultivars include North Country, Chippewa, and Northsky.
4. Lowbush Blueberries: These blueberries can tolerate heat and are commonly found in colder regions. Examples of cultivars in this category are Top Hat, Northland, and Bluecrop.
