a widely used method of active frost protection among growers of low-chill, early season blueberries in Georgia and Florida. A grower survey summarized by Conlan et al. (p. 660) found that growers in both states ranked air temperature, dew point

development will be poor ( Campbell and Sugano, 1975 ). On the other hand, in the case of low chilling requirements (e.g., early-flowering cultivars growing in cold-winter areas), blooming happens too early and freezes can reduce yield ( Bartolini et al., 2006

adapted to the low-chill (<400 h below 7 °C) to mid-chill (400–800 h below 7 °C) regions of the southeastern United States. Most of the breeding has been aimed at commercial cultivars; however, homeowners also like having adapted cultivars, but they often

chilling can result in delayed budbreak, uneven budbreak, reduced shoots and cluster development, change in fruit ripening, and an overall decrease in vine productivity ( Dokoozlian, 1999 ; Londo and Johnson, 2014 ). Low-chill cultivars planted in cold

Actinidia genus. It has been reported that Actinidia rufa displayed a low-chill trait (200 h) followed by A. chinensis (400–600 h), and A. deliciosa cultivars showed the highest chilling requirements (600–800 h) ( Kulthinee et al., 2004 ). In addition

with low chilling requirements growing in cold winter areas, the blooming happens too early because the chilling requirement is quickly satisfied ( Scorza and Okie, 1990 ). Furthermore, studies concerning chilling and heat requirements are thus of
