Blueberry - Sunshine Blue (Cutting) 7/10

L1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2151 days 2hrs

Comments: -

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 blue - they are still sour when they forst turn, but lovely and sweet if you give them time.
