BLUEBERRY - BILOXI

Botanical Name: Vaccinium spp
Description

A great choice for hotter climates with very little chill hours. It is often the first variety to hit the markets ripening a few weeks before other early blueberry varieties. The fruit is firm and the size is medium. Even though it fruits early it can often produce a second harvest later in the season although it's first time to fruit yields the best harvest. Best to mix with other varieties so that when this one is not fruiting another variety is.

Question & Answer

Can I plant 2 x blueberry Biloxi trees so that they can pollinate each other? From: PADDINGTON QLD

They will likely fruit by themselves however you can get more berries by planting another different variety ( not the same variety ) close by and thus getting cross pollination. Other suitable blueberry varieties that will cross pollinate a Biloxi are the Sharpblue, Gulfcoast, Misty, Sunshine Blue and Backyard Blue. There is a very good explanation found on this page http://blog.daleysfruit.com.au/2014/11/pollination-of-fruit-trees.html

Blueberry - Biloxi (Cutting) 10/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 139 days 5hrs

Comments: -

Had some nice blueberries off the Biloxi, not as big as the Misty,  though it's still very young. I've started to (with all my blueberries) remove the flowers and concentrate more on plant growth. I've pruned several weeks ago and already there is new growth. 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 planter bags and raised garden beds 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. 

I have 5 berries in the raised garden beds but am about to repot to planter bags as its easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind which I am prone to do  :)

5/12/16 - UPDATE: What a little beauty the Biloxi has turned into! Fruiting like a champion and just beautiful. Got about 3kg off this so far and it's still full of fruit. Just finished completely netting the Blueberries today as birds are becoming a real pest!

About 1 metre high now and getting quite bushy. I pruned really well last season before I transplanted from the raised garden beds to the planter bag and its never looked back. Feeding with an organic acid loving slow release fertilser and a Seasol tonic monthly. Watering about every 2nd day (except in this heatwave, it's been most days) and less in Winter. Still in the planter bag and going great guns. I do have many beneficial pollinators for the Biloxi in close proximity which has probably played a significant role in the higher yield.

Bought in March, now growing well.  Is South of a fence so I'm hoping it grows quickly so as to get enough sunshine.  It is currently flowering and seems to be happy enough.  I have a Misty for cross pollination.

Comments: - Love Blueberries, at present I buy them forzen. Looking forward to getting a good supply of my own growing. Have 7 different plants do far. Blueberries have proven to be difficult to grow here. Have recently transplanted them into another area of the garden that gets less afternoon sun in summer. The have been planted in Azalea potting mx and peat moss. So far they seem to prefer their new location.

Looking for a fruit that I like that can replace my sheena's gold hedge. Just trialling it this year, keeping in self watering pots.  Have had a few fruit ripen that were on the plant when delivered.  The fruit is much better than supermarket berries, sweet and tangy.  

Planted: 2012

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 3

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: No

Question: Not looking too happy.  Can't remember if I put charcoal in the base of the self-watering pot. Hoping coffee grounds will add enough acidity.
