Just baought a plant. Anyone have any experience with this variety?
Use the search feature at the bottom of the forum page. There are a few threads on it...
Check it out.
Most of the research indicates this plant will succeed as far north as Zone 5 and it appears this plant is fruiting quite nicely in So. Cal. It is a V. ashei x V. corymbosum cross ( a bit more complex, but for general purposes this is a Southern Highbush crossed with Northern). It is a fast grower and produces fruit quite abundantly.
This plant likes an acidic soil like other blueberries. It is relatively disease free and pest resistant. It may be planted in containers as well as the garden/landscape. Do not over fertilize.
Great plant. Have fun and eat lots!

I'm waiting for a root beer blueberry.
How does it taste? My fiance wants to plant one. I'm thinking of putting some out around my Chinese Maple trees in the front yard for the ornamental factor.
I'm growing a Pomegranate-raspberry blueberry plant this year.....Just kidding!
I would like to hear how the lemonade ones taste, although I cant imagine they will taste like lemonade.
