Blueberry 'Pinkberry'

Vaccinium

Hardy Shrub

  • The first ever pink blueberry
  • Sweeter than a blueberry

Self fertile. Who would have thought it? A pink blueberry! This unique new variety provides year-round colour and interest in the garden - not to mention deliciously sweet fruit with a lovely firm texture. The pink-white, bell shaped flowers provide plenty of spring interest, followed by pale green fruits in summer, which quickly become dappled with pale pink and finally ripen to a deep glossy pink colour. As the autumn approaches, the leaves turn bright orange, fading to deep red, before falling to reveal an attractive framework of dusky red-brown winter branches.


Unlike some other companies selling Blueberry 'Pinkberry' we are able to supply this new variety in a 2 litre pot. Your plant will be therefore larger and more established, giving you the chance to enjoy tasty pink blueberries within the first year. As with all blueberry bushes, 'Pinkberry' is self-fertile but will produce a bigger crop if a second blueberry plant is present as a pollinator. Height and spread: 150cm (59").


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 28-32 months.

Blueberries require a well drained, acid soil in a sunny or semi shaded position. In areas where acid soil does not naturally occur, grow blueberry plants in patio containers using a mix of ericaceous compost and John Innes No. 3.
If possible, blueberries should be watered with rainwater because the lime contained in tap water will reduce the acidity in the soil over time. Blueberries will begin to produce fruit in their third year. As fruits begin to develop, cover the plants with netting to protect the berries from birds. From their third year, begin to prune out the oldest stems each autumn to promote new growth and maintain a healthy plant framework.
