BLUEBERRY - POWDERBLUE

Lots of Powderblue blueberriesBotanical Name: Vaccinium ashei
Description

Noted because the fruit has a powdery blush and is medium in size. It is one of the toughest blueberry varieties with a harvest later in the season. A bigger harvest can be achieved by mixing with other rabbiteyes such as the tifblue or others will suit. A great selection for QLD and northern NSW as they don't need many chill hours for the fruit to set. Often the white flowers have a flush of pink. Grows well in pots and has thick enough foliage to be used as a hedge in summer but lets the light through in winter.

Blueberry - Powderblue (Cutting)

VF1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1843 days 21hrs

Comments: -

The fresh fruit noticeably superior tasting to shop bought fruit. The kids love them.

Acid-loving rabbit-eye variety with required chill at upper-end of low chill. Constantly flowering at the moment (Sept.), which I keep plucking off - want vigour to go into foliar growth, not fruit, for another year or two.

Attractive looking  powdery dark blue-green leaves.

Best with a cross-pollinator.

Blueberry - Powderblue (Cutting) 5/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 651 days 1hrs

Way too young to comment on the plant itself yet. Purcahsed mainly as a pollinator for my 2 Blueberry Britewell. It's getting a bit of a beating from the sun at present as you can probably see in the leaves.

It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some fearce summer days) which I'm finding for most of my blueberries the 13 hours a day full sun is just too much to bare so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in a planter bag with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat, and perlite and a really good thick layer of small pine bark on the top. 

Planting in pots and planter bags I just find it easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind on location, which Im prone to do :)

Planter bags I found really reasonably priced at a plcae on the Gold Coast and they do deliver. 

Havent done much fertilising on the Powderblue as yet but tend to use rose, gardenia and azalea slow release (high acidity), coffee grounds and organic pellets.
