Vaccinium ‘Pink Lemonade’

Vaccinium Blueberry "Pink Lemonade"

(Blueberry) ‘Pink Lemonade’ is an amazing new break through in blueberries that offers four seasons interest. In the spring the pinkish-white flowers and early flare. The berries of ‘Pink Lemonade’ start off a pale green then slowly grow to a pale pink and then when ripe develop into a deep pink color. In the fall the leaves turn a bright orange to deep burgundy color. The reddish twigs are a great winter contrast against the white snow.  Any fruit that was missed provides a great treat for the birds.This new blueberry may be pink, but it’s as rich in anti-oxidants as its blue cousins.  This deliciously fruity pink blueberry boasts mouth-watering flavor and good firmness, bearing fruit from May through October.

Warmer weather is getting near ( at least that is what they tell us) and warm weather brings fresh fruits. Last week when I was walking in the greenhouse I noticed these little buds beginning on the blueberry bushes.  Blueberry ‘Top Hat’ makes an excellent decorative pot plant, producing white blossoms in the spring and attractive bronze autumn foliage. Perfect for small spaces, containers and Bonsai. Blueberry ‘Top Hat’ produces full size fruit on dwarf plants! Its plump berries are delicious in pies, muffins and jams. Ideal for the patio. This compact shrub produces masses of Blueberries in July and August.
