Pink Lemonade Blueberry

First Pink Blueberry

We are excited to offer the first-ever pink blueberry! In springtime pinkish-white blooms develop into deep pink fruit ready for picking and eating at summer's end. They are just as tasty and rich in antioxidants as their blue cousins! Mediumsize fruits with a mild, pleasant flavor and a high sugar content are perfect for fresh eating and baking. Self-pollinating.

The fruits are pale greenish at first, then dappled pink, and finally develop a deep pink color indicating a ripened fruit. In Fall the leaves turn a bright orange fading to deep red. Winter time twigs are dusky reddish-brown. Any unharvested fruit supplies sustaining food to songbirds and other wildlife. Medium-sized, glossy, bright pink fruit.
