BLUEBERRY - SHARPBLUE

Sharpblue BlueberryBotanical Name: Vaccinium hybrid
Description

Excellent quality large fruit. Very low chill requirements and self-pollinating. A tough and vigorous bush. It has grown well in both sandy soils and heavier loams. The fruit has a wet scar, and is likely to become soft during very hot weather, meaning that it needs to be harvested frequently to overcome this.

I have my Sharpe in a pot and has given fruit once. I want to plant it in granite soil. Tenterfield area. What do you think? Plant it out and hope for the best or keep in the pot. | Leighton Breen - Tenterfield, NSW 11-Apr-2008

Update: 2808 days 6hrs

Comments: -

Large quantity of cow manure added to sandy soil  sodium bentonite (clay, stock feed) for moisture/prevent water repellency. Pine needle mulch flowers of sulphur to decrease soil pH (Blueberries like acid soils).

Note blueberries will prefer some shelter from sun- particularly in warmer climates (e.g. Perth).

Planted at the same time as my Misty blue plants- hasn't grown as well or fruited as heavily

Labelled as Sharpe. Bought in small pot Dec 2009. Potted up Dec 22 (the rightmost plant). Mix of commercial grade unfertilized potting mix, peat conditioning mix (~half-half), plus some zeolite, spongelite, cow manure, pine fines, coffee grounds and a final squirt of lemon juice. Have azalea slow release fertilizer for use when its adjusted to the new pot. Some leaf damage jan 2010 - maybe a grasshopper? Flowering August 2010, was a bit late with fungicide spray. Still young, so thinned fruit and flowers mid september, only leaving a handful to taste.

Blueberries are delicious. My plant did not look very well about 3 months ago and i think I had a fungus. I repotted the plants in azalea mix and I now have flowers (four on one bush and three on the other), but I think I will pull them off to get the plant to focus on growth.

Difficulty keeping the water up to them during summer in pots, so I planted them in the ground but died the next season anyway.  The Misty's which I kept in pots but moved into the shade are still doing very well.

This is the first blueberry i have grown. i did not choose the species and it has a little rust on it.

cost was $12 from bunnings

Planted: 2011

Height 1 metres

Growing: In a Pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pest Control:

I aim to use organic means in the first instance.

Organic Status:Partially Organic

Question:

I didn't know about Blueberry rust when i received this plant.

What is the best organic way to deal with this?

If I give the plant optimum care and just remove affected leaves continually ,will this solve this issue?

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1195 days 10hrs

Comments: - A year ago and have had a real bad run, didn't mater what I did it just kept dying back on the branches. After a major trim and planting 2 buddies in the same big pot for cross pollination as this will increase fruit production significantly, it's on the mend. Maybe they just needed some company in such large pot. seems to be thriving now. I have noticed the large spoon shape leaves can hold water and if they are left with wet foliage your going to have a problem. they are acid loving plants, I use azalea potting mix, azalea slow release fertiliser and pine bark.

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.
