Rubel is a native selected from the pine barrens of New Jersey. This cultivar obtained commercial acceptance in the early 1900s and is still produced by blueberry growers today. The fruits are small and so flavorful that one of our long time friends requests that I only give her fruits of the Rubel variety. She claims Rubel makes the best pies and pastries.
The bush grows tall up and 8 feet high and spread outward to 4 feet. Yields are
consistently high up to 15 pounds of fruit per year.
Rubel is a great ornamental shrub. The long slender deep green leaves will
turn a burgundy red in the autumn and red twigs in the winter. Flowers in the
spring are numerous with sweet aroma.
