Agricultural Research Service scientists have released a new early-ripening rabbiteye blueberry cultivar that, when grown with other blueberry varieties, will extend the growing and harvesting season in the U.S. Gulf Coast region.

The new variety, named Prince, was developed at the ARS Southern Horticultural Laboratory in Poplarville, Miss. and tested in Stone County and McNeil, Miss., by Stephen Stringer, a research geneticist at the Poplarville lab. Prince produced high scores when tested over three years in several categories including color, firmness, flavor and size.
