Customer Tips & Reviews Blueberry - Sunshine Blue
SUNBURY, VIC, Australia
These have grown exceptionally well - I purchased in 2016 and have had in a pot since. Last year was an absolute bumper crop - we were eating blueberries for what felt like forever and had plenty to share around. This year (2019) we had a few days ...
RIVERTON, WA, Australia
Sunshine blue is a good tasting blueberry that is a little tougher than most. It provides plenty of berries in spring and summer. Although the berries have good flavour they are smaller in size than newer varieties.
WOLLONGONG WEST, NSW, Australia
Love blueberries. As do my girls. Thought I'd give them a go as an understory plant in front of my nectarine/plum multi graft
MELBOURNE, VIC, Australia
Just potted 2 days ago. It looks vigorous with lots of leaves. Was professionally pruned before and a lot of new shoots growing.
HAMPTON PARK, VIC, Australia
Always wanted a Blueberry bush and scored a nice compact shrub from a wholesale nursery that was closing down. Covered in floweres at the moment .... now looking for a good pot and place to put it.
FRANKSTON SOUTH, VIC, Australia
I purchased 2 bushes from 2 different nurseries, Nelly kelly and Humphries. Both are fruiting. The Nelly Kelly already has about 30 berries and its a small bush. The Humphries ones has hundreds of flowers and about 1/2 as much berries (currently) as it...
GUNNEDAH, NSW, Australia
Fruit is amazing just two years after planting! We've harvested nearly 1kg this year. At it's peak (late Nov / early Dec) was harvesting 1 punnet every 3-4 days. Fruit is good size and delicious. We moved it to a new location this year. Full sun, ...
GOLDEN GROVE, SA, Australia
Thought I would have a few varieties of Blueberries, so I added this one. It looks lovely and healthy. I;m growing mine in pots but John Hartley says that they are a great plant for Edible Landscaping - that is a fast growing trend these days - because...
STRATHFIELD SOUTH, NSW, Australia
it's got good growth. had heaps of flowers then fruit, but it's small and not that tasty. maybe i should thin it next time.
WOODVALE, WA, Australia
Really nice, compact and evergreen. Likes to fruit all year round but has the most flowers and berries from about July through to Dec/Jan. Fruit are nice size and very sweet.
Easier blueberry to maintain than other varieties.AKA: Nellie Kelly
North Ryde, NSW
This is a Nellie Kelly blueberry - I adore these plants. I allowed them to fruit in the first year, and they gave a couple of punnets of blueberries in total between the two.Make sure you let the berries atay on the bush for a week or so after turning ...
Burnside, VIC, Australia
2011: I love this variety because it is an ever-green and suited to pot growing. It gives loads of fruits and is so easy to grow in Melbourne climates. I purchased a few small plants this year and had some potted up and some in the ground. So far they ...
Schofields, NSW, Austraqlia
fruit really well for last 2 years.
I have planted 3 as a small hedge on a south facing wall with espaliered camilias. They are doing very well and loaded with fruit. In preparing the site I removed the soil to a spade depth and replaced with azalea potting mix.

First time growing. Has flowered very well through winter with some fruiting.

Mooloolaba, QLD, Australia
Planted in 2008 but I really haven't given them any attention. All the same they have provided me with some fruit which I simply graze on. Will put more effort into them this year to see what they can do.Lots of new growth so it will be interesting...
