I see Daleys and others are selling this new blueberry on steroids.
I haven't tried the fruit nor does the prospect of large berries appeal to me. I'll let others pay the $30 and report back.
Plantnet don't recommend planting in ground.

Yes, I was looking for a giant blueberry rather than a dwarf.

Sour grapes much Boris?

Come on, at least they bred it through traditional methods as opposed to transgenic manipulation like pluots etc. I'm not sure what cultivar they bred it out of, but either way I don't see why the taste should be diminished.

I think most blueberry aficionados recommend pots for all types as the pH is easier to regulate.

Apricots and plums are both prunus.
Better pull out the tangelo then because that's a manipulated grapefruit mandarin cross.

Ok not the best example. But they are coming out with some other weird interspecific hybrids like nectaplums and pluerries and peacotums. Not that it bothers me.

Yes, the idea of large blueberries is about as off-putting as an anthracnose resistant mango, or a fruit fly resistant guava!

Sorry, but some things are just better in small packages. Would a cherry be a cherry if it was the size of small apple?

If it tasted like a cherry and was the size of a water buffalo it would be fantastic. Small apple size would also be great.

I would personally hate it though if my Jaboticabas were the size of baseballs, cambuca the size of softballs or abiu were the size of basketballs. I'd pull them out immediately.

Blueberry Burst was bred over the course of 20+ years starting out with Florida release material. Their website is earlyblue.com.au and they are the same folk behind Ozpeach.

Dave assures me that they are self-fertile and I am a believer. I must say expectations are big for this Galapagos Island version of the blueberry, it could be the Holy Grail of blueberries in my opinion. Semi-dwarf, self-fertile, low chill requirement and huge fruit! I wonder what the shelf-life is and when we might see it sold in the markets.

Holy grail of blueberries would be one that doesn't crack or split, sweet , without going mealy after wet weather, resistant to Phytophthora. Size is a secondary factor.

I just bought one from Bunnings. Most of the flowers have dropped off it seems, but there are a few left; should I pick them off to increase growth for next year?

How long are these supposed to live for?

I bought mine 1 month ago. Has 80 or so blueberries forming now. Apparently they increase in size once they start to ripe. I'd leave the flowers as it's only a small bush and womb get that much bigger.

It is very common for fruits of almost all species and varieties to have poor fruit the first year or more, even the very best. I have heard that a bucket of homeopathic Phosphorous 30C sprinkled over the foliage is beneficial to fruit trees and their fruit bearing qualities , used in India.

Boris, what is the soil composition and mulch you have your blueberries in? I have read all of the following are used:
sphagnum peat/coco-peat/compost
perlite/pumice/vermiculite/sand/loam
pine bark, sawdust, acitone, coffee grounds, tea leaves and Yates Fertilizer with a squeeze of lemon juice.

A lot of pH remedies out there...

For my 2 Blueberry Burst plants,I mixed 50% Azalea potting mix with 50% Premium Potting Mix that had 20% more washed filling sand added to it then blended in about 25% chicken manure added to the whole lot.I mulched them with some autumn leaves.I checked ph added sulphur to bring ph down.Yes what Ive done is unorthodox,some say adding chook manure is bad because of nitrates.Theyre growing well.I feed them a mix seasol/powerfeed occasionally.I grow them in pots in a shadehouse.Full sun in Adelaide in summer from about 1 pm is very savage .Love it or hate it thats what Ive done.I hope Ive given you some ideas.

My son has eaten or picked them off, there are some hidden below but most of them are quite small. I tried the ones that he'd knocked off, but they were a little sour, otherwise refreshing...but definitely not sweet. The fruit does appear of pour quality, so yes, I'm hoping it improves in subsquent years. They say to remove teh fruit of other varieties int eh first year, so hard to compare right?

Anyway, I ahve a couple left that I'm going to leave for at least another week (and if the birds/my son don't get them) I'll let people know if they taste any better.

I bought two, one for me and one for dad so I hope I haven't bought duds. My mother in law bought the Nellie Kellie so hopefully I'll be able to compare.

I bought a large Blueberry Burst a while ago. It was fairly potbound, so I put it into a 20 litre Bonsai bag and filled with Azalea mix.

Didn't feed it, as it seemed to have fertiliser already, and it's probably the wrong time of year anyway. I potted my Sharpe Blue, which I bought at the same time, in the same mix.

Since then, they have developed brown tips on the leaves - well, nearly half the leaf is brown. It has cooled down, but not exactly cold yet, so I don't think this is the cause. Any ideas folks?

I have no experience with this variety, but with plenty of other non PBR types, without the hype or price tag.
I'll join the dots. You're a stones throw away from Kallangur (Plantnet HQ), with the claim to the oldest plant. Affiliated with Plantnet per chance?

I have had one of these planted for about a year. I got a few quite a few flowers last year but no berries. This year I was hopeful and got lots and lots of flowers but the flowers are just not turning into fruit. Bush looks very healthy. We have two other blueberry's in pots for last three years always great crop (Kelly ones). Not sure what is happing with this one. Was looking forward to fruit as big as a dollar coin. Waiting for the blast part. Any advice .

They were selling punnets of the fruit alongside the plants at Nambour a few weeks back. Quite good. Much larger than others I've seen in punnets. Not quite dollar coin size though. Mine has only spent about a month without flowers or fruit since I got it probably a year back...

Just picked my first tiny crop. Not really impressed - it's next to a Misty, which is much sweeter, and the berries are about the same size.

The berries were blackish purple for quite a while before I picked them (BB and Misty), so even if they look ripe they may not be.

Had it about 10 months and this is its first crop. I've had the Misty a bit longer. Hope it improves next season.

Yes, I covered mine with a net this year, so I've had it just over a year now and had probably hundred little berries or more, heaps. First few got eaten by birds, didn't have the net on properly and they were bigger berries unforutnatley. I don't think I fed or watered it enough, as the berries seemed to get smaller and a bit shriveled, but still edible. I agree, not very sweet, but they do have flavour and are fresh so that's good. Definitely not dollar sized or best tasting blueberries I've had though, which is a shame, but my experience is that they fruit quite well and especially in the warmer temperatures here which is a great compromise. Maybe next year and with a bit more care, I'll have a better crop...

I bought 4 of these to try out. I killed one of them by accident while trying to get rid of ants so I had to get a replacement. First picture was when I first got them 30th Sept'2014. Really tiny plants and they were about 14 weeks as I was told so roughly 3 and a half months. 2nd picture was in Apr'2015 so they are about 10 months old I guess and starting to bloom with lots of flowers. 3rd picture is taken yesterday 2nd Jun'2015 (probably about 1 year old now) where the flowers have mostly dropped and now they are fruiting a fair bit, very few blue ripe ones as they were early. My 3 year old is not giving them a chance to get any bigger anyway. Most of them are green as well. It will probably be a while before they are actually ripe and I can finally comment on the taste and size of the blueberries. At the moment they are not impressive in size but its their first year anyway. Will update at a later stage.

There have been reports of burst plants ground planted in the ACT growing much larger than the one metre dwarf size. I suspect that the recommendation to keep them potted may keep the size down.

Heres an update on a 3yo Burst that growing better and cropping a bit earlier than my 4yo one - repotted in March into a 430mm using Azalea mix - 20mm pine bark mulch 45/45 and 10 of peat moss to acidify and some rock dust.
Still not $1 size yet as these were protected by organza bags and kept growing size and didnt fall off into bag.
Flavour was best ive tasted as picking early to beat birds are a bit tart.
Some dwarf red shatoots alongside :)

Blueberries have a shallow surface root mat system a bit like Avocados and moisture on hot days is a must and mulch to hold it in during the day - Bursts were supposed to be as big as $1 coin - NOT :( and their taste gets better the longer you can leave on bush as wont fall till you nudge them - still like Brigitta Annie and Nellie Kellies one which I think is a Sunshine Blue low bush evergreen - look forward to comparing to Legacy?

Hi all. I have had this BB for 6 months now and it had heaps of flowers but unfortunately only one flower seems to be bearing fruit... does anyone know what the issue may be?

They are composed of azalea:pine bark 50:50, and I have them in self watering containers so the soil stays moist all the time. Good amount of sun as well. I haven't added any fertiliser since buying them.

Living on the Gold Coast.

Thanks guys!
