Burgundy

A standout selection from Maine, Burgundy has small but distinctive foliage: bronzy colored new growth in spring, delicate gray-green leaves in summer, and deep burgundy fall colors. The berries are the size of small peas, light blue, and are presented for easy picking around the outside of each compact plant. Growth takes place as underground stems spread. Mature size is about 3' wide by 1' — 2' tall and perfect in a patio pot.

This new rabbiteye cultivar from the University of Georgia is still under commercial trialing in Europe. Titan is showing fast growth and yield potential at early stages with very large, firm fruit. It is a midseason rabbiteye that requires a pollinator variety to ensure good fruit set. It grows well and performs best in warm areas with hot summer temperatures.
