The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of blueberry cultivars, group Rabbiteye, and the fruit size on its development attributes to the growing conditions of Pelotas/RS – Brazil mesoregion. The experiment was conducted in full production plants of the cultivar Climax, Bluegem and Powderblue grown in a commercial grove. A completely randomized design (CRD) conducted in a 3 × 3 factorial (Cultivars × Fruit size) was used in this study. Fruit dry and wet weight (g), number of seeds, fruit diameter and height and fruit dry matter (%) were assessed and this led to the correlation between the fruit diameter and height for the estimation of fruit moisture (%). All data were submitted to analysis of variance and observed to be significantly different when compared using Tukey’s HSD test (p≤0.05). The results show that the variables fruit diameter, fruit height, fruit wet weight, number of seeds and dry weight fruit size influence the results. Among the cultivars, in general, Powderblue presents bigger, more proportionate and heavier fruits, therefore with greater moisture content in relation to the other cultivars.
