Florida White

Breed: Florida White
Description: The ideal weight for bucks and does is five pounds and the registration weight for both sexes is between four and six pounds.

The Florida white is another breed that was created by fanciers with a specific need in mind. The breed originated in Florida to satisfy the demand for a medium-sized rabbit with good meat qualities that could also be used in research stations. The Dutch and Polish were used in the initial cross and the New Zealand white was added at a later stage.

The type is a rather cobby, compact rabbit, the hips and hindquarters well rounded, gently sloping down to well-proportioned shoulders. The head is small and the ears short, well-rounded at the tips, well-set on the head. The fur is pure white, short and dense, with roll-back properties.
