Blueberry – Burst®
Vaccinium x Burst®
2 lt pot
An Australian bred dwarf variety (growing to 1 m high by 0.75 m wide) produces an extremely large fruit early in the season. The fruit can be harvested over several months and is suitable for growing in all areas of Perth given the right conditions. Very heavy cropper.
Grows best in a sunny but protected position with some shade from the hottest afternoon sun during summer. Needs an acidic soil (below pH 5.5) and can be grown in a pot (using Azalea and Camellia potting mix) or in the ground (Dig in a good quality compost and test soil pH before planting). Self Fertile but fruit set can improve when planted with other varieties.
Best results may be achieved in Perth soils by growing in a pot.
