Blueberry - Blue Rose

$14.75 ($14.75-$27.00 choose a size)

A highbush selection best suited to cooler climates. An excellent variety, with good autumn foliage, and large fruit. It is essential that the fruit be left on the shrub until the last minute, as the fruit is very acidic and will not ripen after being picked. When they are fully ripe they make an excellent berry for cooking or fresh eating. The skins will melt after about 10 minutes of simmering and produce a self-thickening sauce that is delicious poured over ice cream. They are one of the few berries that, when frozen and thawed, keep their form and flavour.Tall growing and extremely vigorous this blueberry is prolific. Start picking before Christmas and have blueberries into March. Most important. Blueberries require an acid soil with a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. They also require a free draining loose friable soil. They dislike clay heavy soils. To aide the successful establishment of bushes it is best to build up beds by incorporating peat moss and garden soils at a 50/50 ratio. Peat is preferred as it is naturally acidic.
