Where do Pink Lemonade Blueberries grow best?
Most blueberry shrubs need full sun to produce their sweet fruit in any quantity. Pink Lemonade needs at least 6 hours of direct sun exposure per day. It can grow in less sun, but you might not get the maximum amount of berries. A slightly higher acid content is required by blueberry shrubs so test the soil and amend it, aiming for a pH of about 6. This shrub will grow to a maximum height of around 5 feet so it makes a nice hedge when planted in groups. Plant where it can be admired for its fall color and beautiful spring flowers.
Is it easy to grow Pink Lemonade Blueberries organically?
The Pink Lemonade was developed as a variety of the native wild blueberry. It inherited the native plant’s disease and pest resistance. This means it is a great choice for organic gardening since it doesn’t need to be sprayed with chemicals and pesticides. Use bird mesh to keep ripening berries on the bush until harvest time.
How much fruit will I get from a Pink Lemonade Blueberry Bush?
The Pink Lemonade Blueberry bush gives you the perfect amount of fruit. It is considered a “moderate producer”, which means it gives you just enough for family and friends, but not so much to overwhelm you with berries. Expect 3 pounds of berries each year. However, these plants have been known to produce up to 10 pounds in a season.
What does a Pink Lemonade Blueberry taste like?
Pink Lemonade Blueberries are just as sweet, if not sweeter, than typical blueberries. Bakers will love using this unusual color in bread and pies, where it is likely to become a conversation-starter. It’s also tasty enough to be enjoyed raw as a snack or breakfast food. Sweeter than many blue varieties, it makes an excellent dessert berry when baked into a pie or simply served with whipped topping.
Pollination and fruiting season
Pink Lemonade is a self-pollinating plant, meaning it does not strictly require another blueberry plant in order to produce fruit. Like many other self-fertile blueberries, it will set fruit better if given a partner. Consider adding another rabbiteye variety for cross-pollination. Pink Lemonade Blueberries will give a large initial crop in the mid- to late-summer season and then go on producing continuously (in smaller quantities) through the late fall. They may not stop until as late as October or the first hard frost.
Best time to plant
As with most fruiting trees and shrubs, Pink Lemonade can be planted in most seasons as long as the ground is not frozen. Planting in the fall allows the plant to become established and then rest for the winter. Spring planting allows the plant to send roots into warmer soil. Either is acceptable as long as the plant’s sun exposure and watering requirements are met as well.
