Blueberry Sunshine Blue
One of the only evergreen Blueberries with beautiful ornamental value on top of bumper crops.
First introduced in 1979 ˜Sunshine Blue' was bred with several highly desirable features; it can tolerate a higher soil pH and higher temperatures, it is an evergreen and is self-pollinating while also producing sweet and tangy, great tasting fruit too! Being able to grow in soil or in a pot with a fantastic pink bloom it makes a great ornamental plant for the patio while also being able to yield 5 to 10 pounds of fruit.
The rise in the reputation of the blueberry as a superfood has also led to a great increase in popularity. The fruits are packed full of vitamin c and antioxidants and are much more palatable than some of the other superfood alternatives. Blueberries go great with cereal or as part of a smoothie and can make a great tasting jam too.
