Blueberry - Sunshine Blue (Cutting) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 57 days 0hrs

Comments: - 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 of really hot days and drying winds and they both appeared to collapse.  A hell of a lot of water later and cutting back some of the dead canes has rejuventated them and one is even flowering now (late December 2019).  Will see how they recover but before this year, have been incredible bearers of high quality fruit, much tasteier than those found in supermarkets.

Comments: - 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.

Blueberry Burst (Cutting) 8/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 138 days 1hrs

Comments: -

Still too young to really comment too much yet. Only purchased about 2 months ago. 

It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some fearce summer days) which I'm finding for most of my blueberries the 13 hours a day full sun is just too much to bare so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted this smaller variety in a 50cm pot and made the medium as I do for all the blueberries. BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat and perlite (with some more pine bark mixed through) with a good thick layer of small pine bark on top.

Blueberry - Biloxi (Cutting) 10/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 138 days 1hrs

Comments: -

Had some nice blueberries off the Biloxi, not as big as the Misty,  though it's still very young. I've started to (with all my blueberries) remove the flowers and concentrate more on plant growth. I've pruned several weeks ago and already there is new growth. It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some fearce summer days) which I'm finding for most of my blueberries the 13 hours a day full sun is just too much to bare so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in planter bags and raised garden beds with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat, and perlite and a really good thick layer of small pine bark on the top. 

I have 5 berries in the raised garden beds but am about to repot to planter bags as its easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind which I am prone to do  :)

5/12/16 - UPDATE: What a little beauty the Biloxi has turned into! Fruiting like a champion and just beautiful. Got about 3kg off this so far and it's still full of fruit. Just finished completely netting the Blueberries today as birds are becoming a real pest!

About 1 metre high now and getting quite bushy. I pruned really well last season before I transplanted from the raised garden beds to the planter bag and its never looked back. Feeding with an organic acid loving slow release fertilser and a Seasol tonic monthly. Watering about every 2nd day (except in this heatwave, it's been most days) and less in Winter. Still in the planter bag and going great guns. I do have many beneficial pollinators for the Biloxi in close proximity which has probably played a significant role in the higher yield.

Blueberry - Gulfcoast (Cutting) 10/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 138 days 1hrs

Comments: -

Still too young to really make any comment on it but seems to be growing well. Got new little shoots on it so it must be happy. 

I water virtually daily depending on weather. I planted in planter bags and raised garden beds with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat, perlite and some pine bark mixed through the main medium mix and a really good thick layer of "small" pine bark on the top. 

I have 5 berries in the raised garden beds but am about to repot to planter bags as its easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind :)

5/12/16 - UPDATE:  About 1m high now and growing beautifully. Blueberries are HUGE and taste beautiful! Most are the size of 10c piece. I've just completely netted the Blueberries today as a variety of birds are becoming a real pest! Can't blame them I suppose.

Can't wait to see what this little beauty brings on next season as it matures. My Biloxi (3yr old) produced about 3kg this year and the Blueberries arent as huge as this Gulfcoast.....good times ahead :)

I do have many other beneficial pollinators in very close proximity to the Gulfcoast. 

Feeding with an organic acid loving slow realease fertilser and a Seasol tonic about monthly and water about every 2nd day (most days lately in this heatwave) depending on weather...less in Winter of course.

Blueberry - Powderblue (Cutting) 5/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 138 days 1hrs

Comments: -

Way too young to comment on the plant itself yet. Purcahsed mainly as a pollinator for my 2 Blueberry Britewell. It's getting a bit of a beating from the sun at present as you can probably see in the leaves.

It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some fearce summer days) which I'm finding for most of my blueberries the 13 hours a day full sun is just too much to bare so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in a planter bag with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat, and perlite and a really good thick layer of small pine bark on the top. 

Planting in pots and planter bags I just find it easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind on location, which Im prone to do :)

Planter bags I found really reasonably priced at a plcae on the Gold Coast and they do deliver. 

Havent done much fertilising on the Powderblue as yet but tend to use rose, gardenia and azalea slow release (high acidity), coffee grounds and organic pellets.

Mexican Blueberry - Fuchsia blutini

Linton's Edible Fruits
Update: 177 days 9hrs

Comments: -

Fuchsia Blutini Mexican Blueberry

Fuchsia arborescens x paniculata


Just bought a couple of these Fuchsia hybrids (Fuchsia Arborea BluTini) to see how they go. They are currently just starting to flower and by the end of Summer they should have produced profuse clusters of sweet edible round berries that look like blueberries. They are quite unlike any other Fuchsias and this variety has a PBR license so you are not allowed to propagate them yourself. Should be perfect for growing in pots on the balcony.

Blueberry - Misty (Cutting) 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 290 days 8hrs

Comments: - This variety seems to be more tolerant of our sandy soils here in WA - and I have found it performs the best in our heat and with the slightly limey bore water. It is a Californian bred variety so perhaps that is why. Fruits very well. I apply sulphur (sand-grain size) in late winter, to help keep an acid pH in the soil. Sometimes I use iron sulphate during the year also. We have one Sharpe Blue to assist with cross pollination and it prefers to be in a more shady spot, I have found I have trouble getting them to push vigorous new canes - to replace the old growth.
No Nitrates for blueberries - as they have limited nitrate reductase enzymes to break it down. I use ammonium forms - which are also acidifying, which is what blueberries like also.

Blueberry - Blue Rose (Seedling) 9/10

BloodPlum1's Edible Fruits
Update: 430 days 5hrs

Comments: -

Update - Just got my first harvest of blueberries! I did lose one to a bird but I quickly netted the plant and protected the rest. The taste of the berries is very subtle with a hint of sweetness and none of the tartness of the store-bought blueberries. 

_______________________________________________________

Previous update - lots of little fruits have started forming all over where the flowers used to be. I applied some acidic fertiliser once the berries stated started to develop. Looking forward to heaps of tasty fruit, provided the birds don't get to them first!

_______________________________________________________

I bought this as a seedling from my local nursery this year. After a number of friends had failed attempts with their blueberry plants, I thought I'd give it a go. I did a lot of research before buying it as I had heard that they can be very fussy plants, but hardy, if they like the conditions they're in.

It is important for the soil to be sufficiently acidic. I potted it in a large 50cm glazed pot, with camellia/azalea potting mix and mixed through peat moss (which is acidic). I mulched with pine needles and every now and again throw on ground coffee which also helps to lower the ph in the soil. It's also important to only water with rainwater as tap water can be quite basic with all the chemicals they add to the water these days. 

So far it seems to be doing well. It has grown quite vigorously even in the short time I have had it. It has dropped all its leaves in the winter. Melbourne has had a particularly cold winter so I'm hoping for a good crop this year!

Update - just last week it started flowering following Melbourne's warmest August days on record! The flowers are stunning as you can see in the photo below. I've got my fingers crossed I get some fruit as the flowers are very sensitive to frost and reports of freezing winter days ahead
