Container blueberries popping in NE

edweather(Zone 5a/b Central NY)May 12, 2013

L to R, Bluecrop, KaBluey, Blueray, Sweetcrisp (in the small black container,) Patriot, then another Bluecrop, and the lone container in front is a Farthing. All have blossoms except the Sweetcrisp which is 2 years old now. Freeze watch for tomorrow night. Will probably have to cover them.

Looking great Ed! Does the sweetcrisp have fruitbuds? Ive got 7 of those half drums ready to go now and will be potting up all my sweetcrisp in them and a few select others. Springhigh, Scintilla, Jewel and Snowchaser are definatly getting a permant home at my house. The others are still alittle iffy in my mind at this point. Have you gotten to taste all of your varieties to this point?

Thanks blueboy. No, the Sweetcrisp is the only one without fruitbuds. I've only tasted the Bluecrop and Blueray, the others were too young last year. The Blueray has a heavy set of blossoms this year, but not too heavy......there are leaves with the blossoms.

I hope they are all good for you. Even the worst ones in my yard are better than anything store bought. Hope the sweetcrisp will fruit for you up there. They really are outstanding and by far the best berry I have. I wish you luck!

Per the Sweetcrisp patent abstract, it is hardy to -15 C. (5 F.).
