I purchased this as my first fruit bearing plant. So far I have been extremely satisfied. In a few short weeks, my sweetheart blueberry plant has grown about 6 inches and the leaves are bright green. This is a very healthy plant. I am patiently waiting for my first fruit.
How many years before fruiting plants bear their first crop?
For fruiting plants such as blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, fig, honeyberry, cranberry, and grape, it takes 2 years to bear the first crop. That does not mean you may not get some fruit before then. Depending on the size and maturity of the plant shipped, you may get at least a few pieces of fruit or a small quantity produced the first year. But, by the second year, you should have your first real crop of fruit to enjoy and fruit production will increase every year thereafter.
