  • The bush will produce up to 3-4 kgs of fruit in a year. These fruit are a great source of antioxidants, fibre and vitamins A, C & K.
  • The blueberry is from the same family as azaleas, which thrive in acidic soils. A pH level of around 4.5-6 is ideal for blueberries. For best results use a well drained premium azalea potting mix.
  • The bushes need to be planted in an area with overnight temperatures below 5 degrees during winter in order for the flowers to set before fruiting.
