blueberries in shade

ashieMarch 23, 2009

I would like to plant blueberries on my property. I am wondering if I could plant them under a pine tree which gets afternoon sun (3pm-6:30pm), it is pruned from the bottom up about 6 ft from the ground. Would they grow well and produce a good amount of fruit if planted there, because of the acidic soil? Thanks for the answers

Based on my experience growing blueberries, along the east side of our house, I think that you can successfully grow blueberries in the location you describe, but, each shrub might produce about a cup of fruit per year. In a location with full sun, all day, the same shrub might produce a quart of fruit per season.
