     My response--------

     Foremost priority is flavor, as I've not found many which have
pronounced flavor, all rather bland to my my taste.
     Distant secondary priority is size.

     Jeez, Fluff, I didn't realize that rabbits like blueberries!!!  Here,
they starve prior to eating them!

     I suppose as with humans, there is ethnic preferences amongst other
animal species as well!!
