BLUEBERRY - SHARPBLUE
Botanical Name: Vaccinium hybrid
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

Very good flavour. Of the 6 varieties planted, this is one of the better tasting fruit. However, the berry size seems to be getting smaller in succeeding years.
