    A new, easy to grow and fascinating plant, that will produce delicious pink blueberries! The fruits form without the need of a pollination partner, after the bell-shaped, pinkish-white flowers (which appear in spring) have faded. Initially a pale green, they first become flushed with pink, but turn a deep pink when they are fully ripe and ready to pick. A mid-late to late-season blueberry, the berries have a lovely mild flavor and a firm flesh.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Prune in winter, cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring, feed with sulphate of ammonia, sulphate of potash and bonemeal and top-dress with ericaceous compost.
